2nd Annual Richard Telfer – AMA Minority Business Student Scholarship Golf Outing

In June, the UW-Whitewater chapter of AMA organized the 2nd Annual Richard Telfer-AMA Minority Business Student Scholarship Golf Outing.
Dr. Richard Telfer served UW-Whitewater for many years, including as Chancellor.  “Dick” has long been a champion for students of color. In honor of his service, the UW-W AMA chapter hosts the Richard Telfer-AMA Minority Business Student Golf Outing.  All proceeds go to Minority Business Students, priority given to those pursuing marketing and sales careers.
There were over 85 people in attendance, including AMA students, Marketing Department faculty, and many sponsors from local companies such as Sherwin Williams, C.H. Robinson, Arien’s Company, Victor Envelope, Impact, Aerotek, Primex, Acurite, Federated Insurance, TEKSystems and Lueder Financial Group.
The event was held at the Stoughton Country Club with some friendly team competition raffle prizes and an auction!  Thank you to everyone that participated and made the event successful!

Institute for Sales Excellence – Sales Cup Winners Announced

On Friday, April 28th, students participated in the last sales competition for the academic year, Relationship Selling, sponsored by Northwestern Mutual.  This competition, one of many throughout the year, is one way that students can earn Sales Cup points. Throughout the year, students have been earning and accumulating points with the goal of winning the annual Sales Cup.  Points are given for participating in internal and external sales competitions, certificate programs, job fairs and networking events. Winning at sales competitions awards more points.  The Northwestern Mutual Relationship Selling event was the last chance for students to earn points and determine the Sales Cup Winners!
