We Want You!
Each of the American Marketing Association’s 70+ local chapters operates independently, and volunteers manage all aspects of chapter operations including membership development, succession planning, finance, programming, sponsorship and professional development.
Volunteers are involved in single projects—like planning a monthly program for the chapter—as well as long-term planning activities as chapter officers. While attending events is a great starting point, volunteering for your chapter is the best way to meet and befriend others in the local marketing community.
We’d love for you to join our team and there are lots of ways you can help!
Our Chapter is comprised of multiple volunteer committees:
- Communications Committee keeps people in-the-know on all that is AMA NEO via digital and social media.
- Hospitality gets things warmed up during networking mixers and events
- Programming plans all of the killer chapter events
- Membership teammates build value and the liaison between the community, our chapter and the AMA Support Center.
- Culture and Community works to expand the chapter network and build a community of passionate marketers
- Partnerships and sponsorship are essential to the success of our chapter, so we’re always looking for sales professionals to help.
