Pat Martin Excellence in District Leadership Award

The Pat Martin Excellence in District Leadership Award is designed to honor the legacy of our D2 matriarch, the late Pat Martin, and will be awarded to a member of the American Advertising Federation who exemplifies Pat’s work by making outstanding contributions to his or her District.

When Pat Martin began her first job as a copywriter, she was among the first women to break into the advertising industry. She continued to be a leader throughout her career: as the first woman ad director in one company, as a pioneer in the integration of advertising; promotion and sales training; and as the first woman chair of the American Advertising Federation.

Throughout her career, she championed—and exemplified—ethical practices and served as a role model and mentor. She was also a dedicated leader within the AAF organization and District 2 in particular. As a result of her of her work, the AAF’s District 2 became a powerhouse and was instrumental in strengthening all of the clubs within it.

The Pat Martin Excellence in District Leadership Award is given to a member of the AAF who exemplifies Pat’s work by making outstanding contributions to his or her District.
