Volunteering is a rewarding experience and it can help accelerate your marketing career to the next level. The AMA-Kansas City Chapter has several different committees and a variety of ways that you can get involved. Those areas are highlighted below.
Get Involved, Network, Learn New Marketing Skills
If you want to learn new skills, the AMA Kansas City Chapter offers volunteers the opportunity to work on special projects in areas that you might not have responsibilities for in your current position. Each month the Chapter offers award-winning marketing programs over the lunch hour. These are incredible opportunities to broaden your professional skills, hear about new ideas, and marketing programs across a variety of industries.
There are many benefits associated with volunteering including meeting other marketing professionals. Our volunteers find that by simply getting involved they are able to expand their network beyond co-workers and gain access to professionals located in top companies throughout the entire greater Kansas City area.
It is all about what and who you know. The AMA Kansas City Chapter helps you learn, grow and expand you professional network. Regardless of your current skills, if you have a little or a lot of extra time, we invite you to become an AMA Kansas City volunteer.
Please, make the most of your membership and get involved today. Contact Cynthia Edmunds, Executive Director, at email@example.com, call (913) 681-6252, or sign up at one of our monthly events.
