MIDLAND, MI – Students in Northwood University’s American Marketing Association (AMA) participated in the AMA 35th Annual International Collegiate Conference which took place from March 21-23 in New Orleans.
AMA is a student organization that provides students with professional experiences in several competitions by teaching them how to manage finance, people, projects and deadlines. As part of that experience, the International Conference takes place every year. It consists of a series of lectures from current marketing professionals and helps build networking connections and competitive learning opportunities for students. AMA is one of the largest professional associations for marketers with 38,000 members worldwide.
This year Northwood University won two awards—the Marketing Activities Week Award and Outstanding Chapter Planning Award. The Marketing Activities Week Award was given to the Northwood chapter of AMA for successful recruitment of new members, performing community service in the Midland community, promoting organ donation and hosting their first speaker of the year. The second award, Outstanding Chapter Planning, was received for chapter excellence in devising and executing the plan.
Professor Hosein, AMA advisor, commented, “Northwood’s AMA students worked together as a team for a job well done. We are very proud of our students in representing our University and winning these two awards.”
