Hello, Baltimore Marketing Elite!
We are seeking leaders who will bring an infusion of new ideas, energy and enthusiasm to head the organization in 2011-2012.
The Baltimore Chapter of the American Marketing Association is both a regional and national organization that brings together all marketers across all specialties, to collaborate and inspire one another.
We offer our members compelling educational and strategic programs that range from traditional advertising to public relations to online marketing and progressive media. Our social networks, happy hours, AMA in the AM seminars, and evening events, are designed to foster networking and relationship development. Our goal is to make sure your mind and career are nourished and your relationships are both fruitful and enjoyable.
What opportunities open up to you when serving on the Baltimore AMA Board?
One of the most powerful things about the AMA is the tireless efforts that our board members put in to make every event, communication, and project a success. You may not be aware of all that these individuals do, so Marci DeVries, President of the Batlimore Chapter would like to highlight a few superstars for the month of December.
Katie Roberts – Katie has embraced mobile marketing for the Baltimore Chapter and is taking us into the pockets of marketers throughout the region. We would like to recognize Katie’s brave foray into an area of marketing that is new for her, with our new partner, Mobile Scoops.
Keith Michel – Keith has introduced several new event styles to the Chapter’s roster of in-person get togethers – He has arranged national events including the Social Media boot camp, as well as very successful no-charge events including the Meetup on December 1, and our upcoming roundtable for non profits. We now do offer “something for everyone” in our event roster.
Nichole Kelly – Nichole has undertaken the monumental task of overhauling our e-newsletter. This updated look and content style is her brain child and the entire chapter is thrilled. She also negotiated with a new software vendor, Blue Sky Factory, to host and distribute the newsletter. We hope you like it as much as we do.
Don’t forget there are many opportunities for YOU to get involved. We are currently accepting nominations for the 2011 AMA Board of Directors and Committee members. You can nominate a colleague/friend or it’s totally okay to nominate yourself! This is a great opportunity for you to network with area marketers and help be drive change in the Baltimore region. If you are interested please contact marci (at) amabaltimore.org.

So you think you need an intern? Need some advice on how to start? Let me try to assist you. As a former practitioner who used about 25 interns from various local colleges and the current Internship Placement Coordinator for JHU undergrad. business minors, I have a good sense of what employers need and what students seek. If you follow these 5 steps, you’ll increase your chances of landing a good student!
Every year the AMA Baltimore Chapter conducts a survey to hear from you! We use this feedback to continually make our chapter better and use the feedback on our programming to determine what kind of speakers to provide next year. Here is a brief summary of what you told us.
The Collegiate Committee is looking for a motivated, involved student to fill the position of student liaison. The liaison must be a student (undergraduate or graduate) at a college or university, a student member of the AMA, and a member of the AMA Baltimore chapter. The role will involve working with student chapters in Maryland to increase participation of students in AMA Baltimore events and helping to facilitate AMA Baltimore members to get involved with student chapters through guest speaking opportunities. For more information, contact Judy Harris.
If you know any talented, motivated undergraduate students of marketing in Maryland, let them know about the AMA Baltimore scholarship awards. As in past years, the AMA Baltimore Chapter is offering a $2,500 first place award and two $500 book scholarship runner-up awards to qualified students. These merit scholarships offer a quality opportunity for marketing students to become familiar with the American Marketing Association and its resources - at both the national and local level.
