AMA Central VA Chapter Seeks a Membership Chair

We're a community of marketers inspiring curiosity, debate and connection. We eat too many cookies at our meetings and enjoy hanging out in bars and wearing ugly holiday sweaters. But our meetings are a little quieter and a little sadder these days, because we're lacking a Membership Chair. That's where you come in! If you're interested in getting more involved in our community, please contact [email protected] to learn more.
