The Eastern chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA) came home with some souvenirs over break. They attended the 34th annual International Collegiate Conference located in New Orleans, Louisiana. The AMA International Collegiate Conference brought together over 1400 students and their faculty advisors. Here students learned about career paths within the marketing field from experienced representatives of top companies.
With over 300 international collegiate chapters competing, Eastern was able to bring home awards in the following areas; Outstanding Chapter Plan, Outstanding Annual Report, Outstanding Community Service and Outstanding Professional Development. The chapter also received awards for raising organ donor awareness through AMA Saves Lives by placing fourth in both Video Uploads and Facebook Posts.
"We've had a lot of new and innovative ideas and have worked hard to stay consistent with our original plans for the academic year" said President Robert Regan. "I'm very proud of our dedicated executive board and committed members." While members are riding high off of their impressive showing at this year's conference, it won't be long before they start preparing for next year's competition. AMA meets every Wednesday at 3:00pm in the Science Building 132 if you are interested in joining.
