Gearing up for another great year at AMA Austin, the dedicated volunteers who make our local marketing community shine gathered on Saturday, June 16 to chart out plans for the year. We were grateful to include former AMA Austin president and national AMA chair elect Stacy Armijo for our planning session. Stacy has been an advocate for AMA and a great mentor for many of our members. You know how some people energize you? The volunteers at AMA are amazing, and this is definitely a group that inspires me. I’m very excited about working with such a phenomenal team!

This year, AMA Austin is focusing on “Being the Key” to helping our members and our organization succeed. AMA aims to be an essential community for marketing professionals, and we’ll work hard to bring you new opportunities to advance your knowledge and your network this year. Our plans for the year include:

Develop Your Skills and Learn from Fellow Austin Marketers
We have some exciting programs lined up for the year ahead. Our marketing programs are designed to share strategies that can help you become a more effective marketing professional. These programs also provide an opportunity to get connected with a great marketing network. Additionally, we hope to bring even greater value to your membership in AMA. We would love your help! We’re currently seeking volunteers who can contribute to making a difference in our membership experience and membership communications efforts.
