Dear AMA Austin Members,

Happy New Year! 🎉

If your New Year's resolution is to expand your network and connect with fellow marketing professionals, then being an AMA member is your ticket to success. We're starting off 2024 with a bang by hosting a Member Mixer on Thursday, January 18th, at the fantastic Moontower Cider Company.

But that's not all—AMA membership comes with a bundle of benefits. You gain access to the latest research via our AMA Academic Journals, a treasure trove of marketing literature in the form of Marketing News, and a host of amazing events. Don't forget to explore the National Events page for a wealth of opportunities, and mark your calendars for the AMA National Virtual Conference: The Year Ahead in Marketing. Our very own AMA CEO, Bennie F. Johnson, will be a keynote speaker.

I'm thrilled to announce a new sponsor partner for AMA Austin, JTX Media, led by Jackson Tritt. They'll be taking care of our chapter's video production projects. We're deeply honored and grateful to have Jackson and his company on board, and we're looking forward to a long and productive partnership.


2024 promises to be an exciting year for your AMA chapter, with some big highlights on the horizon:

  • We've kicked off January 2024 with a full board and a record number of volunteers dedicated to supporting all our members. Meet our incredible team on our Board & Leadership page.
  • Our event calendar is brimming with opportunities for you throughout the year. Keep an eye on your inbox for our emails and regularly check our events page for updates.
  • We're ramping up our use of HubSpot to better serve our chapter and its members.
  • Collaboration is key, and we're partnering with other associations to expand our reach and provide more value to our members.
  • In May, we'll be attending the National AMA Leadership Conference—a can't-miss event!

And don't forget our monthly Marketing Coffee Mornings—a perfect way to start your day with a cup of joe and meet new friends. See you at Easy Tiger North at 8 am on Wednesday, January 24th!

Best wishes for a fantastic year ahead,

From The White Lotus to The Bear, it seems the best stories on television now are coming from the world of Hospitality, which is often a closed environment where characters from different walks of life converge. This can lead to interesting conflicts, secrets, and alliances, making for compelling drama. 

The same is true of hospitality marketers!

AMA Austin's February Power Hour is centered around Hospitality Marketing, and we're on the hunt for a venue host or title sponsor for this exciting event scheduled for Thursday, February 15. This is your chance to get your brand front and center in the vibrant world of marketing professionals in the Central Texas region.

Topics for discussion include:

  • Creating a brand that stands out
  • Online reputation management
  • Social media strategies
  • Influencer marketing
  • Customer experience and loyalty programs
  • Personalizing the guest experience
  • Sustainability and green initiatives
  • Adapting to market changes

If you're interested in collaborating with us, please reach out – let's make this Power Hour unforgettable! Contact AMA Austin VP of Strategic Partnerships at
