Teamwork makes our dream team work

The board is 100% volunteer-based meaning that in addition to our primary 9 to 5 jobs, we spend our time together building the essential community for marketers in Los Angeles. In addition, we are all current, active members of the American Marketing Association – the largest professional organization for marketers with over 30,000 members worldwide and 70 professional chapters in the United States alone.

In each of our respective roles, we strategize, plan, and create value for the 300 current members of the AMA Los Angeles chapter. This includes planning and producing high-value events, programs, and professional development opportunities across an area of over 500 square miles.

Our Executive Team includes the President, President-Elect, Executive Secretary, Head of Finance, and Immediate Past President and those individuals drive our vision, mission and initiatives forward. Our Board of Directors includes all Vice Presidents who lead their respective teams under functional areas like marketing, programming, membership, and collegiate relations to name a few. Our Volunteer Core supports all team leaders across the chapter on the tactical level-they’re the real rockstars of our organization.

Our volunteers dedicate themselves to facilitating our strategic initiatives and advancing our footprint across the Greater Los Angeles Metro. Our team is comprised of marketing professionals from nearly every industry, background and practice area– a unique demographic that offers our members (and each other) the opportunity to make a big impact for our members and everyone who attends and frequents our events throughout the year.
