Hi AMA community — how is everyone doing? Hopefully you’re acclimating to our new environment with COVID-19. That said, sending everyone good vibes.
Our AMA Triangle volunteer team has been acclimating too. From a volunteer management perspective, that was pretty easy — we’ve always done our AMA Triangle work remotely (highly recommend Basecamp if you need a full platform). But we have missed our in-person team meetings and we’ve REALLY missed seeing you all at our events. As you likely know, we’ve postponed our March, April + May in-person events.
BUT…this volunteer team is working to make up for this with more webinars, blogs and content (more to come on all of this). We even tested a volunteer social. And then we circled back to a little idea we’ve had since the beginning of the chapter year…
A Slack community for AMA Triangle members!
We had it in our backlog until we could improve the website experience (accomplished in February, woo!). Then COVID-19 happened and it became even more imperative that we deepen connections within our community, so here it is. Our hope is that this becomes our member’s go-to place for asking questions, connecting with fellow marketers and staying up-to-date on the latest trends…especially when we can’t see each other IRL.
And as always, please do not hesitate to reach out to us on anything. We’re here for you + this community of rad marketers. That’s literally our core mission — support, nurture and help marketers in a community that values a sense of belonging + a place to learn, grow and thrive. These are crazy times, but we got you.
Sending our best + hope to see you on Slack!
Tracy Russell-Beck + the AMA Triangle Executive Board
PS — if you’re not a member and have some FOMO with the Slack, no worries. Get membership details here (more news on that next week) + let me know if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
