As we wave good-bye to 2023, AMA Toronto is starting to prepare for a jam-packed 2024. 

November 17
AMA Toronto meets Ontario college students in Blue Mountain

Over the past few years, we’ve struck mutually beneficial partnerships with Seneca and George Brown. A number of AMA’s current and past senior volunteers now teach at colleges. And Miglena Nikolova and Syed Zahidi have been instrumental in outreach to various colleges and universities. 

On November 17th, AMA Toronto was a sponsor at the Ontario Colleges Marketing Competition and a participant at the event. We hosted a booth and offered 5 Career Accelerator scholarships as prizes. Miglena was a competition judge and Syed was a practice judge. Two of our Rockstar volunteers, Akshay Subramamiam Raju and Prem Kailash fielded questions from students at the booth.

Congratulations to AMA’s partner Seneca Polytechnic who won the overall competition for the second year in a row!

AMAzing Rockstars

AMA Toronto has many volunteers that go above and beyond to help our chapter and the marketing community. This month we celebrate Aastha Shah who oversees the production of our monthly newsletter and Akshay SR who not only posted this blog but drove to Blue Mountain with Prem Kailash to host the AMA booth at the Ontario Colleges Marketing Competition. Thank you for everything you do!

Aastha joined the Marcom team this fall and has played a pivotal role in our recent successes, especially in the Agency Panel event, monthly Newsletter and the Canada’s Hall of Legends Nomination campaigns. Her expertise in handling email and social media has been invaluable. Beyond her professional skills, Aastha's positive attitude and adaptability have been instrumental in MarCom's success in recent endeavors. Aastha has 6 years experience in digital marketing and currently is an Account Manager at The 2045 Collective.
