Letter from AMA President, Jordan Maddex-Kopp





It is my pleasure to officially welcome you to our 2019-2020 Board term with exciting updates from AMA Omaha. From our revamped programming lineup and new and expanded Board of Directors to our renewed focus on What’s Next, this is shaping up to be a game changing year for our Chapter.

To get started, our Board took a fresh look at where AMA Omaha can add value to our community, and revamped our programming to match. Our monthly events now include the AMA Omaha Power Lunch – with national speakers and local experts offering ideas to stretch and challenge your thinking – as well as our more tactical Workshops – sessions that offer practical skills for today’s professional marketer. New this Board term, our membership team brings you an AMA Omaha pop-up series, Marketers’ Meetups. Join us as we hopscotch the city, turning up in new locations at different times to offer guidance to current and future members on maximizing your AMA membership – with coffee or ice cream on us.

What else can you expect from AMA Omaha? Each year, we celebrate the astounding strategic and creative work in our community with our annual Pinnacle Awards, and we continue to give back through our AMA Cares initiative, adopting a local charity partner each year and offering that organization support, fundraising, and more. Coming soon, our Chapter will expand our educational resources with a local podcast, AMP by AMA Omaha, featuring short segments perfect for your commute with updates from AMA, presenter interviews, and other marketing inspiration.
