Our AMA (American Marketing Association) student chapter received national recognition at the national AMA Collegiate Conference. Congratulations to all involved and to the faculty advisors – Thomas Byrnes and Patrice Nealon.
The American Marketing Association at PCOM recently held their 3rd annual AMA Alumni night. They had 6 panelists (recent PCOM graduates) who are currently working at Lenovo, IBM, Red Hat, TEKSystems, Telit and ROI Revolutions. Approximately 60 current students in attendance and they asked the alumni specific questions on what the transition was like and how to better prepare (both as juniors and seniors) for the working world.
The AMA has enjoyed great success this year. In 2013, we had approximately 60 members; this year we are at 165+ (the membership grows with each meeting).
Kudos to faculty: Thomas Byrnes and Patrice Nealon for coordinating the AMA
On March 19-21, 2015, six executive leaders (Sydni Collins, Erica Miller, Alyson McKinney, Lauren Brommer, Shrey Shah and Andrew Giles) of the Poole College of Management’s collegiate chapter of the American Marketing Association at NC State University attended the 37th AMA International Collegiate Conference in New Orleans. The conference provided the attendees with competitive role-playing situations, networking opportunities with over 1400 students from across the globe and several corporations and professional development via multiple marketing presentations.
The AMA collegiate chapters were able to celebrate their success and learn some of the best practice chapter management techniques.
On September 13th, members of the American Marketing Association at North Carolina State University volunteered with Habitat for Humanity of Wake County to help build a home in downtown Raleigh. The members installed insulation, added nails inside the house to secure the foundation, installed the framing top plate and helped to construct and install the gable end truss. This was an amazing experience for the members of the Association to get involved and help in the community.
Thomas Byrnes is the faculty coordinator for the AMA.
