We’ve got lots of exciting things happening at AMA.

First, after an extensive search, theĀ American Marketing Association has named Bennie F. Johnson as the new CEO. Johnson recently headed up the American Institute of Graphic Artists (AIGA) and has held a previous leadership role with the Council of Better Business Bureaus (BBB). We’re excited to see how this experienced strategist and community builder will help continue to evolve AMA to meet the needs of modern marketers.

At a local level, the AMA Richmond chapter recently received a Community Outreach Special Merit CEA for the 2021-2022 year. We are particularly proud of this honor as the 2021 – ’22 chapter year was one of significant rebuilding. We began bringing our community back together, acknowledging the wide range of personal situations, comfort levels and preferences, and attempting to “meet people where they are.”

We’re busy planning programming for the second half of the year and look forward to more fun and unique ways to connect, learn, and grow together–and have some fun in the process!

If you’d like to be a part of our efforts, please reach out. We’ve got many volunteer opportunities available and are always looking for engaged people who want to make an impact.
