Discounted Membership Dues
Group members have easy access to new tools, information and business solutions—all for savings of up to 30% per member. All it takes is three members to get started with a group membership.
AMA group memberships will inform your team about local and national events, ability to gain access to thought leadership ideas on ama.org, gain subscriptions to publications specific to your area of marketing function, and give access to new tools, information, and solutions.
The Tools You Need
AMA helps you craft marketing organizations of skilled, knowledgeable talent that propels the business forward. By tapping into national and local resources, marketers meet day-to-day complex challenges and stay at the forefront of current thinking and practices.
It Doesn’t Matter Where You Are
The group memberships are not specific to each chapter, and cross geographical lines. For instance, if your company is headquartered in Houston, but a portion of your marketing team is based in California, the memberships will stay within the geographical territory of the individual team members.
