Call for Nominations

The Marketing for Higher Education Special Interest Group is soliciting nominations for the position of SIG chair.

The Marketing for Higher Education is the most recent AMA SIG and has quickly grown its membership to circa 100 members in the last two years.

We are looking for an individual with a passion for Higher Education Marketing who can work with the SIG leadership on an agenda for moving the SIG forward and provide value to SIG members.

·         Grow and sustain the membership

·         Lobby for competitive tracks at the Winter and Summer Marketing Educators’ Conferences.
