“This recognition only reinforces what we already know–AMA Houston is made up of the country’s top marketers. It takes a team of dedicated board members, volunteers, and members to continue this winning legacy for Houston and I sincerely appreciate everyone who helped make it happen,” said Stephen Brent May, 2018-19 President of AMA Houston. “AMA’s continued recognition of our chapter makes Houston the winningest chapter in the country and is further proof that we are ‘the’ resource for Houston’s marketing professionals.”
Established in 1974, the CEA program highlights AMA professional chapters’ outstanding achievements in all areas of chapter operations, such as strategic planning, volunteer management, membership engagement, programming delivery, and financial management. These chapters continue to build on a legacy of achievement by delivering exceptional, innovative experiences to their local marketing community year after year.
“AMA Houston consistently builds on its successful program to meet the needs of one of the largest populations of marketers in the country,” said CEO of the AMA, Russ Klein. “Their commitment and conviction to elevate their fellow marketing professionals and the businesses they represent is why Houston continues to rise to the top of the more than 70 AMA chapters.
