About Us


The Brisbane Advertising Association (BAA) was founded in 1989 by a group of prominent industry identities as a way to connect those working within the industry whilst also giving back to the community.

Set up as a non-profit organisation, BAA currently has over 150 financial members drawn from  all sectors of the media and advertising industry, including but not limited to media and creative agencies, marketing professionals, associated industries and specialist service providers.

BAA’s objective is to encourage social interaction amongst the various facets of the Brisbane advertising industry whilst raising funds for worthwhile causes and charities. It does this through holding a number of different style events across the year, culminating in the infamous BAA Xmas Lunch.

Through raffles and other fundraising concepts at each of these events, as well due to the support of our many sponsors, BAA continues to raise funds and donates over $20,000 each year to nominated charities and worthwhile causes. In addition, BAA continues to support members of the industry when in need.
