Ad Club Officers
Emma is our trusty Commander in Chief. As President, she’s determined to help each member of Ad Club develop their skills and passion for the industry. In addition to brainstorming ways to “Make Ad Club Great Again,” you can find her scrolling through @GoldenDoodlesofInstagram, chowing down on some peanut butter and fruitlessly trying to keep up with the Kardashians.
Connor is our Vice President. Some of his goals include increasing Ad Club attendance and putting his leadership role to the test with this year’s campaign project. Outside of his Ad Club responsibilities, he’s a part of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, UNL Sports Business Association and employed at Hidden Valley Golf Course. In fact, he’s been a big part of creating Ad Club’s first Albatross Open golf tournament, which will be a swinging good time.
Carleen is our Art Director. Basically, she just takes pictures of various Ad Club events, but she really wanted a cool title. Give her some chocolate, and she’ll take your headshot. Besides photography, her talents include gift-giving, guessing where people keep their silverware and getting freaky on the dance floor
Jared is our Creative Director. He’s in charge of all things graphic design, and he makes us look a lot cooler than we actually are. His interests range from concerts and record collecting to rock climbing and golfing. He once met Shia Labeouf in a Village Inn and learned the secret to success... Just do it.
Social Media Coordinator
Dakota is our Social Media Coordinator. If it weren’t for him, we’d probably put the toaster filter on all of our Instagram posts. Besides being glued to his phone, you can catch him hiking during his free time, but you can bet your bottom dollar he’ll be making a post about it. To befriend this one-of-a-kind human, simply mention Taylor Swift, California or dogs.
Steph is our Operations Director. She keeps us on track in meetings so we don’t end up talking about Beyoncé instead of deadlines. If your questions are not related to Queen Bey, she’s the person to hit up about anything Ad Club. Beyond answering emails and keeping us in line, she likes to sing her heart out in the Boots & Cats acapella group, sew, crack jokes and hit up the lake.
Special Projects Director
Casey is our Special Projects Director. He plans, coordinates, and oversees the execution of various parts of our club. Basically, he’s the guy in the background that makes sure everything doesn’t go up in flames. As a senior, he’s got years of Ad Club experience under his belt, and he hopes to pass on some of his wisdom to our other members. He’s a prime person to know, and if you want to get on his good side, slide him some of C. Berry’s mac n’ cheese.
Kelli is our Ad Club Advisor, and honestly, she might be the biggest Ad Club enthusiast of us all. When she’s not going on wild adventures, such as her quest to tour all the state capitols, she’s in the classroom teaching advertising strategy and development, strategic writing and copywriting. If her teaching career doesn’t work out, stand-up comedy is definitely her next step.
