Nancy Hill, president of 4A’s, has cancelled a scheduled ‘Trust panel’ appearance at Advertising Week in a move which is being interpreted as a sign of an ongoing dispute between agency groups.

Trust Forum: Transparency would have seen Hill partake in a sit-down conversation discussing 4A’s approach to ‘achieving fairness and transparency in the marketplace’. Now Hill will conduct a series of member meetings across the US instead.

The abrupt change of plan follows a public disagreement over transparency guidelines issued by the Association of National Advertisers’ with Hill arguing that agencies should be free to reference the advertising agency trade group’s own guidelines for maintaining transparent relationships between agencies and clients.

Hill is set to stand down from her role as 4A’s head by June 2017.
