About Us


American Marketing Association Hampton Roads strives to engage the local marketing community by offering essential tools, educational information and networking opportunities. We aim to be the leading resource essential for local marketers, providing a channel for exchanging industry knowledge, elevating the careers of our members and ultimately, putting answers into action.


Our industry is constantly changing. We are the local marketing force that helps to shape the field and ensures our members can stay ahead of the curve and excel in their careers. We believe knowledge itself is not power. Rather, power is knowledge applied.


The AMA Hampton Roads Board Members are dedicated volunteers committed to the chapter’s mission and delivering a strong return on your investment with us. We encourage your involvement as a member volunteer as we take the AMA Hampton Roads to an even higher level of excellence.
