Marketing club seeks new members
By Jacob Zokvic
The LCC chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA) continues to seek new members.
The club’s website states that the group provides students the opportunity for development through leadership opportunities and involvement in professional projects and events.
Student George Davis said he has learned a lot as the club president and social media creator.
“Being a member has been a great experience,” Davis said. “I have learned so much about marketing in my current role. I've met incredible people and have established wonderful personal and business connections.”
Davis described some of the fun activities the club has experienced recently.
“Our organization had a few highlights over the past year,” Davis said. “We had two awesome virtual forums with Grammy Award winning artist India Arie and LCC President Steve Robinson.”
Club Adviser Adrienne Jenkins has been with the club for a long time.
“I actually began my involvement with AMA as a student back in 2004-2005,” Jenkins said. “I was able to learn so much hands-on business experience and meet many professional contacts that helped me build my network.”
Jenkins said the club was a big part of her success.
“I credit AMA with helping me achieve my goals, including earning my AA, BA and MBA degrees, and obtaining my current position as operations coordinator with the Arts and Sciences Division here at LCC,” Jenkins said. “I would encourage any student who wants to further their career to consider becoming a member.”
Any LCC student who is taking at least one credit is eligible to join. All majors are encouraged to check out the club. They offer many opportunities for professional development, community service and team building opportunities. There is no cost to be part of the LCC American Marketing Association.
The club meets at least once a week virtually via WebEx during its general member meetings. Those are held every Wednesday from 4 to 5 p.m. Students can contact Adrienne Jenkins at email@example.com to get an invitation to the virtual meeting. Anyone is welcome to attend.
