Meet Emily Munk!
Emily is currently the Vice President of Communications for the American Marketing Association – Pittsburgh Chapter. She joined the Pittsburgh Chapter this past year and was involved previously with her alma mater’s chapter during her undergrad. Initially, Emily was looking for an organization to volunteer with that offered leadership opportunities that aligned with her professional goals, and she found that in the AMA.
Outside of the AMA, Emily works in marketing communications for WESCO Distribution. WESCO is a global distribution and supply chain solutions company headquartered in Pittsburgh. Within her current role, she helps to support and drive corporate marketing initiatives across the business.
Within her current role with the AMA, Emily oversees the strategic communications committee, including email marketing, text marketing, social media management, and media relations. Her goal is to help get the word out about the AMAzing educational trainings and networking opportunities that our chapter offers to marketing professionals in the greater Pittsburgh region.
She believes that one of the greatest benefits of AMA membership is access to our local events, in addition to regional and national events. Her favorite AMA event of 2020 has been a virtual series organized by the AMA New York chapter titled, “Women in Marketing,” an event with the goal of bringing attention, balance, and focus to important issues affecting women in marketing.
Personally, Emily feels that you always get more out of volunteering than you put into it. She’s been able to meet some great people within the local community that she otherwise may not have met. Professionally, the AMA provides Emily with a great way to keep her skills current and gain insights into what’s happening with marketing in Pittsburgh.
