The American Marketing Association of the University of Iowa has exciting news for this coming school year! During the summer the executive board has been working hard to organize dates and events that will enhance the experience of all AMA members. We want our members to have a voice, working with executives, to experience hands-on leadership and have a more productive, fruitful year. Through different committees, members will work with appointed executive board members to fulfill the goals of each committee. These committees include working with alumni relations, event planning, fundraising, and much more.
A new addition this year is our Professional Development executive position, which will amplify the focus on members’ professional development with AMA. Members will have opportunities to learn from prestigious guest speakers, AMA alumni, and team-building activities. Workshops to enhance member resumes, business cards, elevator pitches, and interview skills will be incorporated into weekly meetings.
Of course, this year will be full of great events including professional trips to marketing and advertising agencies, participation in regional and national AMA conferences, philanthropic festivals and activities, and the annual Tippie Case Competition.
This is only a glimpse of what AMA will accomplish this year, however we have much more in store. Stay posted for more information and upcoming events!
If you would like to know more about what we can offer you, please attend our first informational meeting. It will be held on: Thursday, September 3rd in S121 PBB at 6:00PM.
We hope to see you there!
