Ginger Reichl Appointed National Student Advertising Competition Chair for the 4th District American Advertising Federation

Pinstripe Marketing is pleased to announce that its president, Ginger Reichl, has been appointed 2019-20 Chairperson of the National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC) for the Fourth District American Advertising Federation.

Each year, a sponsor provides more than 2,000 college students with a real-world case study and an outline overviewing its product and their current advertising plan. Students must learn about their product and research the brand’s competition in order to develop a new campaign plan for the company. The college chapter members then develop a comprehensive plans book and an accompanying 20-minute presentation. This new campaign strategy is then “pitched” by each team to a line of judges. The judging panel is comprised of professionals from the communications industry. Students from AAF college chapters from Florida and the Caribbean will compete in April 2020 and the winner will go on to compete in a semi-final round where the top eight compete at ADMERICA, the AAF national conference in June.

Ginger was a member of Florida State University’s NSAC team during her senior year in 1993 and says it was one of the best experiences of her college career. She later served as Fourth District NSAC Chair for several years prior to taking a hiatus from board service.

“I have a big soft spot for advertising education and the NSAC,” said Reichl. “Working with the AAF, district leadership, and the team advisors is always rewarding, but seeing the student’s work always leaves me energized and inspired. These are the best of the best in the next generation of advertising professionals.”

The 2018 NSAC sponsor is Adobe.

During his tenure, the organization experienced one of the most rapid and energizing periods of growth, including increasing membership 334%. Known for his positive energy, he led the charge to reenergize club committees, recruit more volunteers, and to keep the organization in good health with fundraising. He also revived the Ad 2 Liaison position in the 4th District to help bridge the gap between Ad 2 and AAF so both organizations can work more harmoniously toward their shared goals. His leadership was recognized by AAF in 2017 when he earned District Club and President of the Year, and National Club and President of the Year honors.

“Connor’s enthusiasm and passion for Ad 2 were the common thread in each of his nominations,” said Ginger Reichl, president of Pinstripe Marketing and former Ad 2 president. “He is clearly a connector and his desire to make the organization diverse and inclusive are what drove the remarkable membership growth last year.”

Connor is a marketing communications specialist at Triad Retail Media in St. Petersburg.
