After its Annual General Meeting (AGM) it is learnt that the Ad Club Bombay will be formally named The Advertising Club. The change is in keeping with Ad Club’s effort to be inclusive and larger representation to the industry. In this direction, the first step is to include members from Delhi in its Managing Committee (Man Com) and also hold its Effies judging in the capital too. The judging in Delhi happened last year too and plans are now to strengthen its presence e there.

Pratap Bose, COO, DDB Mudra Group will be the Secretary and Sujoy Ghosh will be the Joint Secretary. Madhukar Sabnavis of Ogilvy will be the Treasurer.


Talking about the development, Mr Sinha said, “The purpose is give a larger footprint to Ad Club Bombay . Since we have had requests to include Delhi under our aegis, we have taken a step in that direction. Also Delhi and Mumbai represent the large chunk of our fraternity thus it makes sense to bring them together and provide a consolidated platform to the industry.”
