ABOUT THE AMA TRIANGLE
The Triangle chapter of the AMA is a dynamic, vibrant and growing organization. With about 600 members and a ton of local events and programs, we feel pretty strongly that there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re a seasoned marketing pro, new to the profession or simply a business owner who wants to learn how to better market your company – the Triangle chapter has plenty to offer.
But let’s not bore you with generalities. Let’s talk about what you get for your membership and lay out exactly why this is really a pretty good deal.
NATIONAL AMA BENEFITS
First, as an AMA member, you have access to all of the Member-only content that’s online at www.ama.org. This includes hundreds of articles, white papers and best practices – plus webcasts, podcasts, interactive templates and too and a Career Resource Center.
Members also receive significant discounts on ALL national AMA events, including conferences and training sessions. Furthermore, as part of your membership, you will have access to a number of marketing publications, which provide the latest information, insight and research on what works, what doesn’t and what marketing trends to watch for. And most people don’t realize this – but there is a robust discounts and rewards program associated with major brands in auto rentals, food services, entertainment and cell phone service.
Bottom line — the benefits at the National level alone are worth the price of membership.
But wait. There’s more. A lot more and it all takes place in the Triangle.
AMA TRIANGLE (LOCAL) BENEFITS
Let’s start with some events and programs that are FREE.
First, the AMA Triangle hosts special interest groups called Link+Thinks. These are free monthly events where members come together and share ideas, discuss special topics, and swap best practices. Choose from seven Link+Thinks:
- Digital Marketing & Analytics
- Higher Education Marketing & Communications
- Transitions (for those looking for new job opportunities)
- Nonprofit & Small Business
- Integrated Marketing Strategy
- Marketing Automation
These are great places to meet new people and begin to network, but you also invariably leave with new information or insights.
Want to connect with a mentor to help you grow in your marketing career? Want to be a mentor and pass along your experience and wisdom to newer marketers? You’re in luck — AMA Triangle offers a mentorship program connecting experienced and novice marketing professionals.
Then, there are the social events throughout the year where people just enjoy each other’s company and have a good time. As you can probably guess, marketers are a pretty friendly bunch, so it’s easy to make new friends and build new professional relationships at these events.
But you get even more VALUE for your AMA membership.
Each month the AMA Triangle hosts a special luncheon that featuring regional and national speakers with expertise in topics that range from best practices in Facebook advertising to the guerrilla techniques of marketing a craft brewery. The Brier Creek Country Club location is beautiful. Most importantly – Members get a $15 discount on their luncheon ticket.
As a member of the AMA Triangle chapter, you also enjoy substantial discounts on our workshops. These intensive half-day sessions, led by industry insiders and experts, offer the opportunity to network with your fellow marketers while taking a deep dive into current marketing trends and best practices.
Here’s another deal.
AMA members get a discount on the price admission to the High Five annual marketing conference, which is sponsored by the AMA Triangle chapter. This one-of-a-kind event combines the best of design thinking and the best of marketing effectiveness with one dynamic conference. And the best part is — it takes place in Raleigh so you don’t have to travel far.
And finally, what would a marketing organization be without opportunities to build your professional network? You never know when you might need to call on someone you’ve met in the AMA, whether it’s to learn about new job openings or to seek sound advice. The AMA Triangle is a great place to grow your affiliations and even friendships. Plus, there are a host of opportunities to volunteer as well, whether it’s being a mentor or helping with membership. We also assist college AMA chapters and provide a scholarship for worthy marketing majors.
So there you have it – our total PACKAGE and VALUE PROPOSITION.
We think the list of benefits are well worth the investment. In fact, we like to think that we offer MORE than any marketing or communications in the Triangle.
We hope that you’ll join us. To sign up, just use this link OR if you still need more information — don’t hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you soon at one our events!
