AMA continues legacy of excellence

The American Marketing Association maintains its premier position after being named 2017 International Chapter of the Year. Group

The American Marketing Association had another successful trip to New Orleans to the AMA 39th Annual International Collegiate Conference from March 16-18. Thirty-eight students and four advisors made the trip, and yet again the organization brought International Chapter of the Year back to Whitewater. This is a prestigious award that the group worked toward throughout the year. Two main factors considered are the professional development of students and social impact the organization is making. During the duration of the conference the chapter participated in competitions, attended a variety of speakers and the sales certificate and awards banquets.
