Grow Your Network, Fuel Your Success


Five years ago, I moved halfway across the country to start a new job. In doing so, I left a city where I had an established network of peers and mentors and a calendar full of networking and professional development events. Suddenly, I found myself in a new city with few connections and wasn’t sure where - or how - to get involved.

A few months after I started my new job, I found the solution I was looking for - the D.C. chapter of the American Marketing Association! Thanks to encouragement from my boss, I joined AMADC and started volunteering on one of their many committees.

AMADC instantly connected me to hundreds of marketers across the D.C. region (and thousands across the country) while arming me with the resources and training to develop professionally.

As a member of the American Marketing Association, you get access to over 100 downloadable tools and templates, the latest research from top thought leaders, access to a marketing-focused job bank, and much more. Members also get discounts on training, conferences and events, which can easily cover the cost of the membership!

Whether you’re just beginning your first job, new to the marketing industry, an experienced marketer, or simply starting out in a new city like me - AMADC has something for everyone.

Plus - you can join AMA today for $30 off! Just use promo code FALL16.

But don’t just take my word from it! Here are a few testimonials from other members:


“I have made life-long friends, and have met people who work so hard to contribute to the organization – joining was such a great move for my career personally and professionally. In addition to enabling me to build my network, my public speaking opportunities began through my involvement with AMADC.” 

  • Karen Alston – Founder and CMO, Spectrum Circle/AM+G


“There is a strong marketing community here in the Washington metropolitan area that is a good match for anyone looking to join at any career stage. AMADC places a great emphasis on learning best practices by hosting programs such as the How-To Series, and providing extensive opportunities to network with other colleagues and peers within the area.”

  • Morgan Bramlet – Principal at BlueFusion Branding, Creative & Marketing 


“What I love the most about volunteering with AMADC, besides meeting amazing people and building great friendships, is the fact that the experience and skills acquired through AMADC are transferable to the real business world. Everyone that I have met through AMADC is working so hard to make this association what it is today. They treat it as a regular job, and not as a ‘will do it if I’m in the mood for it’ kind of thing.”

  • Andreea Candela – Senior Specialist, Communications & Marketing, American College of Cardiology
