A Message From Our President

RJ ThompsonDear AMA Pittsburgh Community,

A warm welcome on behalf of myself and our leadership team to the American Marketing Association, Pittsburgh Chapter website. July 1st marked the start of our new Board year and we have some great new additions to our team.

We are thrilled to bring you new programming and further educational opportunities through our local chapter and beyond through the national chapter. Keep an eye out for some of the new initiatives we have planned for the 2019 – 20 year.

Our current variety of opportunities for you to get connected with other marketing professionals in Pittsburgh and experience the benefits of staying connected are listed below:

  • Professional Development & Networking – Our chapter offers many events including educational seminars led by local and national marketing experts as well as excellent networking opportunities.
  • Career Opportunities – As a member of the AMA, you not only have access to the national AMA Job Bank, you can receive automated e-mail alerts to new local job postings. Members can use this tool to post and find jobs in both the Pittsburgh area and nationally, completely free of charge.
  • Membership and Discounts – Membership is an affordable investment in your personal and professional growth. The AMA gives you access to a wealth of knowledge – including access to webinars, publications, research, boot camps, discounts, and much more. In addition, your AMA membership provides discounts on business products through the Affinity Benefits program, as well as discounts on local, regional and national events.
  • 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.

I’m honored to serve as your President and I look forward to meeting you at future events.

RJ Thompson, President
