About our chapter…
The American Marketing Association is an international professional society of individuals with an interest in the practice, study, and teaching of marketing. The roots of the AMA can be traced to the early 1900’s, when the National Association of Teachers of Advertisers and American Marketing Society merged. The AMA welcomed the 75th and 76th professional chapters in 2010.
Through events, sponsorships and an in-depth community of members, the Chapter of the AMA helps students and professionals alike expand networks, get the latest in marketing communication strategies, and find new opportunities that fit their wants and needs.
Governed by an elected board of directors, our volunteers and sponsors will help this forming chapter build national recognition as one of the most comprehensive chapters in the country.
And as part of AMA International, we are soon to be a part of the most comprehensive professional community of marketers in the world. Founded in 1937, the AMA network has grown to 500 chapters throughout North America.
We have come a long way since late 2011, when a determined team of marketers expressed interest in bringing a new chapter of the American Marketing Association to Northeast Wisconsin. The Formation Committee was then comprised of the following marketers that worked on a volunteer basis on the planning and logistics including chapter bylaws, articles of incorporation, board of directors, mission/vision, programming, members needed to incorporate and other support:
Jamie Ceman, UW-Oshkosh
Stephanie Fiedler, Envano Interactive Business
Jill Fochs, Ameriprise Auto & Home Insurance
Brenda Haines, Blue Door Consulting
Lisa Jossart, Ameriprise Auto & Home Insurance
Ryan Kauth, UW-Green Bay
Julie Lichtenberg, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College
