Student Resource Center

The American Marketing Association is one of the largest professional associations in the world with over 11,000 student members, and 20,000 professional members who work, teach and study in the field.

AMA collegiate chapter affiliation can help you gain valuable experience managing people, finances, projects and deadlines- perfect leadership skills to highlight on your resume! Collegiate chapters focus on experiential learning activities such as professional development, community service and fundraising activities, as well as hosting marketing and business speakers, etiquette dinners, resume workshops, and more.

National AMA competitions and activities can take your marketing to the next level. Affiliating an AMA Chapter on your campus can be a professionally and socially rewarding experience. 

The basics to affiliate with AMA: 

  • Find a faculty member on your campus who will serve as faculty advisor to the Chapter. This person must also be or become an AMA Professional Member. 

  • Submit 10 student membership applications​ and payment $50/per student (due once a year) (or note at least 10 students' paid  AMA member IDs on the petition) 

  • Submit Officer Report Form with Faculty Advisor and (future) Chapter President info. 

  • Submit a petition ​containing the names of 10 students who have already joined the AMA online, or whose AMA membership applications are included in your mailing

  • Submit a Chapter Constitution​ Don’t worry, we provide you with a template to get started!  

  • Submit the petition, constitution, Officer Report Form, the membership applications and applicable fees, and a one-time $50 affiliation fee to AMA for approval and processing. 

By affiliating with AMA, you agree to complete three required reports each year to remain affiliated. 

Much of the benefit of starting an AMA chapter lies in the activities the local chapter pursues, and the leadership opportunities available to the students in running those activities, and managing the chapter.

An AMA collegiate chapter may be started at any time throughout the year. It takes approximately 3 weeks from the time of receipt of materials and payment at AMA to process and confirm the chapter affiliation and memberships.
