We will continue ADC Romania’s projects and we will add others that will help establishing a new excellence standard in advertising and design, one that would be understood and validated both by ad people and marketing professionals. ADC is an NGO that counts on the contribution and involvement coming from its members. And, as some of the most beautiful minds in industry are part of ADC, I have no doubt that we will manage to launch relevant and useful programs. We are thanking to all colleagues for the trust vote they gave us
