Established in 2011, BAM is a hub of informa­tion, activity, and celebration for the Montana advertising and marketing community. Members find insight and inspiration in the fellowship with those who share similar passions. In 2012, we became an affiliate of the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the nation’s oldest national advertising trade association, and the only association representing all facets of the advertising industry.
