AMA’s 36th Annual International Collegiate Conference

-Take 5: Return of the Marketers-

On April 10-12, 2014, our CSULB chapter attended AMA’s 36th Annual International Collegiate Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. We were able to learn from established marketing professionals representing companies such as Hershey’s, Coca-Cola, Northwestern Mutual, Burger King, and many more. Although we had tough competitions against other AMAzing schools nationwide, CSULB came home with the following awards:

  • 2nd place: Best use of conference theme in our booth

  • Outstanding Marketing Week Activities

  • Placed top 15 chapters, out of 390 chapter nationwide!

  • Outstanding awards for: Marketing Week, Chapter Planning, Professional Development, Communications , Fundraising and Communications and Community Service

We would like to thank every single one of our AMAzing members and executive board members for the support the entire year! Our hard work paid off and remember, our success would not have been possible without you all! We couldn’t be any prouder of our team!

Cheers to an AMAzing year!
