Are you looking for more ways to increase the value of your membership? Do you want increased visibility within the association and within the DC marketing community? View the AMADC Volunteer Engagement Webinar for an overview of the Volunteer Program and all the benefits you can take advantage of by joining one of our amazing volunteer committees!


AMADC is launching the Advanced Marketing Academy – a new educational/development program in partnership with Georgetown University to elevate the profile and stature of AMADC, reach current and prospective members and students, and reinforce membership value, while creating a new revenue source. The target audience is advertising, marketing and public relations managers who seek certification, as well as current Georgetown students.

The gravitas of the final certification is vital in achieving this ambition. There are two overarching themes we need to convey:

  • Real world placement and experience
  • A strong, modern, and extensive knowledge base across the marketing mix

This program will give those who choose to take it an unassailable head start in their Marketing career, or a unique chance to switch career paths without starting back at square one.

The expected time commitment is 80-120 hours. Responsibilities include creating the content, facilitating the program for students, conducting all follow-up responsibilities, interfacing with our partners at Georgetown and being the public face of the program for AMADC.

Proposal should detail:
Your expertise facilitating college and advance level coursework.
A resume and biography.
Proposed syllabus and detailed lesson plans for 3-2 hour sessions, with specific activities the students will participate in during the program.
Your experience and history of interaction with the Georgetown School of Continuing Education.
Any other relevant information detailing why you should be chosen to launch and lead this initiative as a volunteer for AMADC.

Please submit your response to Jennifer at by 6PM on January 15, 2016.
