Become a Growth Champion

The ANA is the connective tissue marketers need to make better decisions and drive business growth.

Representing more than 20,000 influential brands, we help our members become more effective marketers, build stronger brands, and drive industry and societal change. Our CMO-endorsed Growth Agenda provides a 360-degree focus on all elements of the business enterprise. We also empower marketing teams to become high performers through our unmatched proprietary intellectual capital, including insights, events, and professional development programs.

The ANA Growth Agenda

The ANA and Cannes Lions established the CMO Growth Council, which has identified four global growth priorities to drive business through marketing, to enable marketers to organize, collaborate, and effectively tackle the growth challenges they face today and in the future.

These priorities (described below) directly influence the 12 focus areas that comprise the ANA Growth Agenda — engineered to lead the industry in creating a stronger, more sustainable economic future for all brands and the people they serve.

Learn more about the four growth priorities:

Brand Experience, Creativity, and Media

Whether the key to your brand’s success is delving into the latest creative trends and emerging technologies or addressing hot-button issues like media transparency and digital ad fraud, we offer a robust selection of workshops, committees, events, and marketing intelligence you need to drive growth today and in the future.

Data, Technology, and Measurement

We are uniquely poised to help data-driven marketers fuel growth through our Data & Analytics practice, Measurement & Accountability Committee, participation as a founding member of the Digital Advertising Alliance self-regulatory program and the Making Measurement Make Sense (3MS) initiative, and a full suite of products and services. We also recognize today’s leading data-driven storytellers through the ANA International ECHO Awards.

Talent and Marketing Organization

We equip more than 10,000 marketers a year with the skills they need to advance their careers and the industry, have launched the industry’s first campaign to elevate marketing as a career of choice, published multiple research reports to help brands effectively structure their organizations, and established the ANA Trust Consortium to act as a voice for brands and help establish industry standards, among a number of other initiatives.

Society and Sustainability

We help brands discover and activate their purpose through our Center for Brand Purpose and stand at the forefront of the latest research and industry-wide initiatives driving inclusivity, equality, and brand safety across the marketing industry. This includes the Gender Equality Measure (GEM), used to increase effectiveness and boost ROI in 14 markets around the world, and the Cultural Insights Impact Measure (CIIM), which has helped increase the effectiveness of cultural insights in ads by 300 percent.
