2023 AMA Leadership Summit

An Exclusive Event for AMA Professional Chapter Leaders


Buckle up AMA Professional Chapter Leaders. You are about to register for a weekend of REbuilding, REconnecting and REsults!

It seems, these days, that we are constantly navigating change. Not all chapters are in the same place – geographically speaking, of course, but more so in navigating these changes. Whether your chapter is struggling with REcruiting members, REjoicing because of a successful event, REinforcing your chapter finances, REconnecting with your membership, REstrengthening your leadership or trying to REenergize your board members ─ 2023 AMA Leadership Summit is specifically focused on meeting chapter leaders where they’re at.

What to Expect


Rebuild your chapters by learning new ideas and strategies you can take back to your chapter to implement.


Reembrace your how – how you can grow and maintain a robust and active chapter.


Reconnect in person with 200+ chapter leaders from across the United States and Canada.


Reengage your board members and lean on resources like the Professional Chapters Council (PCC) and AMA Support Center.


Retool your list of best practices for inspiring your board and members through impactful peer-to-peer learning.


Recommit as a leader in the AMA community through continuous learning and networking opportunities

Plus, remember why AMA is the go-to resource for you and your local marketing community!

Your Community Is Here

Not only is LS23 a weekend full of learning, but you’ll also be making core memories. Marketers are their special breed of weird, making the relationships you form much more fun! We’ll share laughs, drinks and maybe a few after-parties @amaconfessions only wishes they could attend. Plus, who doesn’t love an excuse to dress up all fancy and dance the night away at the Gala? You’ll be REtelling stories for years to come!

COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidelines

We know the value of connecting in person, and we’re committed to making it a safe environment for all attendees. We will follow federal and local guidelines to ensure a safe conference. The CDC and experts are helping people better understand their COVID risk, what actions to take if exposed and access to affordable tests. Given these updates, we are offering new options for meeting COVID safety guidelines outlined below.

The 2023 AMA Leadership Summit does not require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test. Masks are optional for attendees. If wearing a mask will make you feel more comfortable while attending the conference, please do so, but we will not require them.

For those traveling, please adhere to transportation mandates in airports, during air travel and while on public modes of transportation.

We strongly encourage you to understand your risks according to CDC Guidelines before attending.

The American Marketing Association is free to establish further limitations leading up to the 2023 AMA Leadership Summit. If there are any changes to the COVID protocol, we will update this page. We thank you in advance for your understanding, flexibility and continued support. We look forward to seeing you!
