National Volunteer Week

AMA Volunteer Leaders, Welcome to National Volunteer Week 2015! 

Volunteers are such an important part of the American Marketing Association, and we wanted to take this week to acknowledge all of our volunteer leaders.  We recognize that volunteer involvement requires that you share not only your knowledge and talent, but also your time.  With your dedication, your professional expertise and your insights, you help the AMA to best serve the marketing industry. 

As you can see from the below slideshow, our volunteer leaders work hard, but also have a great time working with the AMA.

If you are not currently an AMA volunteer and would like more information on how to get involved, please visit our opportunities page in the volunteer section of the website.

History of National Volunteer Week​

President Richard Nixon established National Volunteer Week with an executive order in 1974 as a way to recognize and celebrate the efforts of volunteers. Every sitting U.S. president since Nixon has issued a proclamation during National Volunteer Week (as have many U.S. mayors and governors), urging Americans to give their time to community outreach organizations. Since then, the original emphasis on celebration has widened; the week has become a nationwide effort to urge people to get out and volunteer in their communities. Every April, charities and communities reinforce the week's official theme ("Celebrating People in Action") by recognizing volunteers and fostering a culture of service.
