Happy Thanksgiving Week!
AMA|UAB has been very busy with getting ready to participate in the 35th Annual AMA International Collegiate Conference! This year’s theme of the conference is Live the Marketing Life. Last year’s conference was full of top marketers such as the CMO of Google and McDonald’s North American marketing director. There are also several competitions at conference such as a business simulation and sales role play. AMA|UAB is making plans to attend, and we need to start getting a head count of who all wants to go. You must be a member of AMA|UAB to attend the conference.
Last year, AMA|UAB was recognized as a Top 25 Chapter out of more than 300 student chapters. AMA|UAB will be competing in several different competitions such as the Donate Life American organ donation case study competition, T-shirt design competition, and more. We are very excited about traveling down to New Orleans, LA, for the conference, and we hope to well-represent UAB!
The AMA International Collegiate Conference will be held on March 21-23, 2013, at Sheraton New Orleans in New Orleans, LA. This year’s Keynote speakers will include Jeffrey Hayzlett, the former CMO of Kodak, and Nate Riggs of the Karcher Group. Please visit the official AMA International Collegiate Conference page to see more details and the complete schedule of the conference.
