Board of Advocates

We are always looking to engage with the Twin Cities community.

We currently have 20 members on our Board of Advocates (BOA) who bring their inspiration, credibility, and mentorship straight to our employees. We have representation from companies such as Fast Horse, 3M, and Weber Shandwick. BOA members serve as mentors for CLAgency, offer advice about projects we are working on, and make connections within the Twin Cities. 

We meet with our BOA three times a year to discuss work we have done, to brainstorm areas where we can improve, and to give content creators the chance to ask questions and network.
