One of the best ways to learn about the latest developments in marketing while broadening your professional network is to get involved with the AMA Toronto. Attend our events, take advantage of progressive mentoring and professional education programs, tap international AMA research, or join our volunteer team.
As part of the largest and longest-standing marketing association in the world, the AMA has been engaging junior, mid-level and senior marketers in Toronto with thought leadership for over 60 years. With over 70 chapters, the AMA is Canada’s leading organization for marketers looking to access ideas and a network across North America.
Through my involvement with the AMA, first in Vancouver and now Toronto, I got to know the local marketing communities and build meaningful working relationships. I've found new clients, jobs, and lots of opportunities to meet people within the marketing industry that I never would have met. You can too.
This year, our chapter is focusing on creating opportunities for individual marketers to grow and network in a friendly environment where top marketers are accessible and approachable. Our new Board of Directors is dialing into what's topical in our community to deliver thought-provoking content and strengthen our chapter’s signature programs — the Mentor Exchange, Career Accelerator, and The Marketing Hall of Legends.
We’ve also just launched two notable initiatives: The Marketing Networking Group (MNG), and a master’s program called “Leading Digital Transformation.” MNG is a free monthly meeting to help AMA Toronto members share market knowledge and exchange career advice. Leading Digital Transformation, an exclusive AMA Toronto program developed with the Schulich Executive Education Centre, is set to run in 2019.
Throughout 2018/19 there’s going to be many occasions for you to learn and connect with our membership, special guests, dedicated volunteers and board members. So, keep your eye on our monthly calendar!
