About American Marketing Association

The American Marketing Association is a membership community dedicated to being the voice that shapes the marketing profession and advocating for marketing professionals. 

The American Marketing Association is a fee-based membership organization with approximately 25,000 to 50,000 members. Headquartered in Chicago, members are dispersed throughout the nation as AMA is primarily remote.

AMA offers its members a variety of benefits. These include access to discounted certification programs, the AMA Marketer's Toolkit, unlimited access to industry-leading research published in the AMA Academic Journals, and discounts on everyday services and products

The organization also offers networking opportunities via national and local AMA events and conferences. 

In order to be considered for The American Marketing Association, candidates should be a marketing or sales professional, a small business owner or freelancer, or a scholar/doctoral student looking to publish in a journal. 

Depending on the membership level, an annual fee in the range of $100 to $1,000 will be due at the time of joining the organization and every year to maintain continued access.
