The Cross Platform Measurement initiative, Making Measurement Make Sense (3MS) was launched in 2011 by the ANA, IAB and the 4A's in order to develop digital metrics and advertising currency that facilitate the cross-platform measurement and evaluation of media. The lack of consistent approach to measuring and assessing the effects of digital media has resulted in a cacophony of competing and contradictory measurement systems, contributing to a complex and costly supply chain for the industry. In this session, the Media Rating Council will explain their role in the industry, recent standard setting activities and the current status of the Making Measurement Make Sense (3MS) initiative.

George Ivie, Executive Director – Media Rating Council

LUNCH (12:30 – 1:00PM)


  • 2013-2014 Upfront: In this session, we will ask ANA Media Leadership Committee members to share any best practices as we approach the 2013-14 upfront.  We will also discuss if there is interest in exploring ways to balance pre-upfront press coverage and garner our own advertiser points of view regarding the marketplace.
  • Commercial Ratings Summit: ANA will convene an industry meeting on January 22nd, the day before our committee meeting, to discuss the opportunities and challenges of brand-specific commercial ratings as well as solutions that could facilitate their availability. Attendance will be by invitation only and include ANA members, agencies, media companies, and select industry suppliers. In this committee meeting session we will debrief members on the outcome of this meeting and solicit member input on next steps.
  • "What keeps you up at night?":  ANA Media Leadership Committee Members will be asked to share what issues "keep them up at night" and share best practices to help their peers.  We will also ask for input on topic ideas for future meetings and thoughts on industry initiatives this committee can own in 2013.
