by Stacey Eddington Moore, Immediate Past President, AMA Houston
Did you know that you belong to one of the most successful and dynamic AMA chapters in North America?
When I first joined AMA Houston 12 years ago, I joined for the educational and networking opportunities. I joined to meet like-minded marketers that could help push my career further.
What I didn’t know is that AMA Houston is among the most well respected and well-run of AMA’s 78 chapters across the US and Canada. AMA Houston has nearly 50 dedicated board members that work tirelessly (for free!) every day to bring our members and the marketing community top notch educational programs and high-level networking and career resources.
Good marketing is about results. To win at the Crystal Awards demonstrates that your marketing was effective, standing above the rest. That is what marketing is all about!
