“Volunteering for AMA Toronto has been an incredibly rewarding experience. It’s provided me with opportunities to explore how marketing plays a role in a variety of very different industries, from non-profits to agencies to B2B. It’s also allowed me to expand my network and work alongside some phenomenal individuals, who bring an incredible wealth of experience to the table. From seasoned professionals to marketing students, each has enriched my volunteering experience with their contributions, ideas, and new approaches. The AMA has also provided me the chance to step-up in a leadership role as Director of Membership Networking Group (MNG) events. I am excited to continue my personal and professional growth as part of the organization.”

“I moved to Canada during the pandemic and joined AMA as Manager of Membership Group Buys in 2021. My AMA experience has helped during these challenging times. I’ve started rebuilding my professional network and career, developed new business skills, and adapted to a new culture. My volunteer role has provided me with opportunities to have impact and be recognized. I was promoted to Director for my work in improving the member journey, creating visual onboarding guides, and improving monthly reporting. AMA events and mentorship programs have also helped me build my professional and personal network. Two words describe my AMA experience “fulfilling and meaningful.” I enjoy volunteering and giving back to the community that has helped me.”

“Being a part of AMA has been tremendously rewarding as a newcomer to Canada. I joined AMA over 2 years ago as a Director, AMA International, and over this time I have worked with amazing people who are dedicated to learning and growing together. Through my work with the Chapter Excellence Awards, I have also come to know that this is one of the best run chapters of AMA in the world. (The Silver Award we won last year is a testament to that.) Even amidst the pandemic, and work-from-home realities, AMA has kept us connected with a community of younger and experienced marketers alike. There truly is no place like AMA Toronto.
