Originally, I joined NAMA for the national benefits. But now I renew my membership each year to be part of NAMA—to expand my knowledge and grow my network of smart, accomplished marketers in my hometown. Okay, I have been around advertising and marketing for a long time, and some might say that I have reached a certain level of experience, but the world of marketing is changing constantly and our learning is never over. How can we teach and guide our clients and associates if we are not fully invested in constantly learning ourselves? I am particularly energized by the bright, accomplished folks I meet at NAMA who are so willing to share their knowledge and experience. Thanks NAMA!
