AMA New York Board of Directors, Membership Chairman, Past President

The New York Chapter of the American Marketing Association has become the largest chapter in the United States. A strong focus on member value, collegiate relations, and volunteerism, recognized by the AMA Membership Excellence Award in 2019, boosted the  #1 chapter ranking. When I joined the board of directors of the AMA New York as the Membership Committee Chairperson back in 2014, we were the 5th biggest chapter in the country.
