We've recently updated the AMA Tampa Bay Job Board to help bring employees and job seekers together through best-in-class software and enterprise-grade infrastructure.


The Tampa Bay chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA) has announced its new board of directors and president for the 2021-2022 board term. The new board features six first-time members as well as eight returning members.


The American Marketing Association Tampa Bay Chapter is the leading resource for marketing professionals in our local community, including Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Sarasota and surrounding areas. We are a 100% volunteer-led organization, and form part of the larger national American Marketing Association of more than 70 local chapters and 30,000 AMA members in the United States.

The American Marketing Association recognizes and rewards a tradition of excellence among its professional chapters through the Chapter Excellence Awards (CEA) program.

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.

"Volunteering with the AMA Tampa Bay Chapter has allowed me to use my creativity and expand my project management skill set. With these skills, I was able to help increase our event attendance over the last year. This opportunity has also allowed me to meet new people and network, even in this virtual world we are living in."

"Being part of the AMA Sarasota-Manatee leadership team has been an invaluable experience for not only my personal and professional growth but for my marketing career. I have gained not only new relationships and contacts in the local community, honed my public speaking skills, and have also polished my leadership skills by experiencing all of the growing pains of developing a sub-group of the AMA Tampa Bay chapter. If you have the opportunity to volunteer for AMA, it is a great opportunity for anyone looking to expand their marketing knowledge, network with fellow marketers, and learn new skills."
