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 1900s, when the National Association of Teachers of Advertisers and American Marketing Society merged. 

Through events, sponsorships and an in-depth community of members, the Northeast Wisconsin 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 a board of directors, our volunteers and sponsors have helped this chapter build national recognition as one of the most comprehensive chapters in the country.

And as part of AMA International, we are 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.

Our Chapter

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.

  • Jamie Ceman, UW-Oshkosh

  • Stephanie Fiedler, Envano Interactive Business

  • Jill Fochs, Ameriprise Auto & Home Insurance

  • Brenda Haines, Blue Door Consulting
