AMA Central VA Chapter Blogs

AMA Chapters are joining the blogosphere. David Dolak, branding and marketing blog, links to the Central Virginia Chapter. From what I can tell the Chapter is using the blog as its internet presence.

If you're interested in learning what blogs can do for associations, take a look at Association Inc. authored by Kevin Holland.

Shout Out For AMA Attendee's Blogs

December 2005, AMA offered the first, in what was to become a coast-to-coast series, on marketing blogs. It was appropriate that the Hot Topic Workshop Blogs: Marketing Beyond the Website kicked off in the heart of the blog world - Seattle. During the next 10 months the program was presented in New York, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Atlanta. Over 260 marketers came to learn and network.

Ken Bernhardt, Regents Professor of Marketing, Georgia State University, gave the workshop high praises. "This was a terrific workshop - - informative, cutting edge, and extremely useful. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to really understand what's happening in the marketing communications environment." However, the best reward was that we ("we" as in all of the presenters!) had the opportunity to help and encourage people to explore the uses and benefits of marketing blogs.

At year's anniversary, I wanted to offer a special  "shot out" and say congrats! to the marketers who courageously launched  or tweaked  blogs as a result of the program.  Corporate and personal blogs were created and we even inspired a citizen journalist blog - McChronicles! If I've left out your blog  please let me know.
