Seven-Time Award Winner Since 2004

AMA Houston has won the Chapter of the Year award seven times since 2004. This award further demonstrates how AMA Houston provides marketers the ability to remain competitive in today’s business environment through networking events, special interest groups and real-world educational programs.

The Chapter Excellence Awards (CEA) program was established in 1974 to recognize and reward AMA professional chapters’ outstanding achievements in leadership, membership, and programming. Each year, the AMA Support Center accepts applications for its Chapter of the Year awards from all chapters throughout the U.S. and Canada.



"As one of the AMA’s strongest chapters, our leadership team feels great responsibility, not only to our own members, but to the marketing community as a whole in Houston."

The people I have met and the experiences I have had have increased my professional network and exposed me to exciting ideas that I can apply to my career immediately. Joining the AMA has been the best decision I have made since moving to town."
