A Message From Our President
As President of the Pittsburgh American Marketing Association (AMA), I welcome you on behalf of our leadership team to the Pittsburgh AMA Chapter website. We invite you to explore our new site and learn more about our chapter. We have chosen this year’s theme to be an invitation to “Get Involved.” There are a variety of opportunities for you to get connected with other marketing professionals in Pittsburgh and experience the benefits of staying connected:
- Attend an Event – Hear from marketing experts both nationally and regionally. Stay informed by learning something new or brushing up your skills and knowledge. Gain access to great networking opportunities.
- Become a Member – Membership is an affordable investment in your personal and professional growth. The AMA gives you access to a wealth of knowledge – our national organization offers access to webinars, publications, research, boot camps, discounts, and much more.
- Volunteer on a Committee or Project – Join our top notch team of volunteer leaders to participate in the planning, outreach and strategic direction of the chapter. Volunteering is a great way to acquire new skills, make connections, share your expertise and make a difference.
Getting involved with the AMA is an excellent way to stay informed, build your resume, and develop new business contacts and friendships.
It is my pleasure to introduce you to our Board and Committee Members for the 2012/2013 season:
