“I joined the AMA a year ago after being in Columbus for 2 years. I had been in Columbus and felt stuck in a job I did not enjoy and figured I needed to do something about it. Found out the AMA was there and decided to dive in a new networking group with other marketers. Within my first interactions I became a volunteer and within months had created an amazing network which has taught me many things marketing, and helped me land my dream job!”

-Daniel Alejandro Baca, Digital Marketing Strategist

“New to my position and Columbus, I joined AMA Columbus and volunteered on the AIM Committee to connect with other marketing individuals. AMA Columbus provides a great place to learn new industry trends as well as connect with some of best and brightest minds in the industry. Whether you are an established professional or new the industry, joining AMA Columbus is a-must.”

-Kathryn L. Oster, Marketing Specialist, Budros Ruhlin Roe 

“I joined AMA at the beginning of 2016, hoping to meet other marketing professionals and be part of Columbus’ network of resources. My hope has proven to be true. Already, I’m helping as a volunteer and have met a number of other professionals with similar interests. AMA’s people and its programming are invaluable. I’ve attended great luncheons with topics that directly relate to my work. Being able to hear leaders in Video and Digital Strategies enhances my abilities and knowledge as a young professional.”

-Lynsey Harris, Content and Digital Engagement Coordinator, The Columbus Foundation

“As a volunteer and member of AMA Columbus, it has been an amazing experience. Since joining, I am able to access resources and gain professional connections that have enriched my understanding of the marketing field. From luncheons to Happy Hours, each event provides an opportunity for growth and development. From the very beginning of my volunteer experience, I have been supported and encouraged to take on new challenges. I highly recommend joining especially if you are looking to learn the skills necessary to make your next career move.”

“When I first came to Columbus I had few professional connections. Since joining the AMA, I have grown my professional network, discovered new employment opportunities, and generated new sales leads. I have also gained important industry knowledge through the AMA Luncheon events that have both challenged and expanded my understanding of best marketing practices. I can say with confidence that becoming member of the AMA has been one of the greatest professional investments I have made in my career.”

– Camille Schwartz, Account Manager (Origo Branding)

“As a young marketing professional, I was looking for an organization that would provide quality educational programs as well as provide an opportunity to get involved and build relationships with those in the industry. Becoming a member of AMA has proven to be very beneficial to me both personally and professionally. I have developed great friendships and have been inspired by a number of the speakers, in the short time that I have been a member.”

Kaylah Thompson, Marketing Manager, Big Lots
