Our volunteer members and AMA employees alike had a great time at our Annual Leadership Summit!
The roots of the American Marketing Association can be traced to the early 1900s when the National Association of Teachers of Advertisers and American
Marketing Society, comprised of marketers and marketing researchers, merged to bring together all marketers, across all specialties to collaborate and inspire one another. The American Marketing Association (AMA) officially launched in
1937.Today, the AMA has grown to be one of the largest marketing associations in the world, with over 30,000 members and 1.1M unique visitors to AMA.org who work, teach and study in the field of marketing across the globe.
As the leading organization for marketers, AMA is the trusted go-to resource for marketers and academics. We are counted on as the most credible marketing resource where our members can stay relevant with knowledge, training and tools to enhance lifelong learning and obtain valuable information and connections.
The AMA is constantly innovating and evolving, helping to shape the field as well as keep abreast of the changing global marketplace to help our members excel in their careers.
No other organization provides more ways for marketers and academics to connect with the people and resources they need to be successful.
The AMA strives to be the most relevant force and voice shaping marketing around the world; an essential community for marketers.
The AMA’s unique strength is that we are a "community of communities." In North America alone the AMA is of service to over 17 million marketing and sales professionals. Each year nearly three million marketers engage with the AMA seeking answers they can use. Delivering on this promise is the AMA's mantra, "Answers In Action."
The AMA is home of the most highly regarded marketing journals in the world; where the academia’s foremost thought-leaders publish evidence-based research influencing marketing practice.
This past year the AMA has conducted thousands of live and virtual events spanning all disciplines within marketing. Increasingly these events will be inspired by the industry’s definitive intellectual agenda anchored by “The Seven Big Problems” confronting marketers.
The AMA Global Support Center relocated to a contemporary and collaborative workplace now open to all AMA members as your home away from home anytime you’re in Chicago. I hope you’ll visit us in the coming year to see your AMA at work.
The AMA has also invested heavily in what we call the AMA Community Advantage. Ultimately it is the AMA Community Advantage that sets us apart.
There's a lot going on at the American Marketing Association. We hope to see you in the coming year as we redouble our pledge to deliver "Answers In Action” and the AMA Community Advantage. If you’re a marketer, the AMA is for you.

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at American Marketing Association (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.
The interview process with the AMA was a positive one from start to finish. I applied via LinkedIn and was then contacted to complete a video interview screening (to be completed in my own time) which was followed by a request for an in-person interview. They were flexible with interview times and clear about whom I'd be meeting with during the interviews so I had an opportunity to research and prepare. During the interviews, I met with four different people, all of whom I'd be working with (either reporting to or indirectly reporting to) which gave me a good perspective on the team and environment I'd be joining. After the interview, they gave me a timeline as to when I would hear back and they adhered closely to this schedule so there was no confusion. It was one of the more straightforward and efficient interview processes I've encountered.
