Interest Meeting Notes

WHO WE ARE

The mission of the Valdosta State University American Marketing Association (VSU-AMA) is to engage VSU students in the field of marketing, enhance learning, and build meaningful relationships by providing opportunities for professional development, networking, community engagement and outreach, and individual growth.

Established as the VSU Marketing Club in 2014, VSU-AMA is a student run professional organization. We are a collegiate chapter of the American Marketing Association (THE professional organization for the industry). The number one goal of VSU-AMA is to help students launch their career.

PROFESSIONAL AFFILIATIONS

VSU-AMA is fortunate to be attached to two professional chapters. As a member of the University System of Georgia, we are officially a member of the Atlanta Professional chapter of AMA and a member of the AMA Atlanta Collegiate. However, given our close proximity to Jacksonville, we also participate with the Jacksonville professional chapter.​
