As we move forward and prepare for the upcoming AMA board year, I would like to extend my personal thanks to all of the individuals who decided to continue on as board members and also welcome the new members who have joined our leadership team. In addition to our board members, I’d also like to say mahalo to our AMA members for being a part of our chapter and believing in all that we do.
Our chapter’s vision has always been to be the piko (center) of all things marketing in Hawaii. We want to be the organization in our state that not only connects our marketing community but is also a resource and a means to move our industry forward. This is what excites me the most about the board members who will be leading this chapter. We all come from different aspects of “marketing,” some more seasoned and some with fresh and new perspectives. Given our unique experiences, relationships, and resources, I’m confident that we can continue to bring our vision to life and provide value to our members.
We have a lot of great programs planned for the year, one of which will be a first for our organization. AMA will host our own marketing conference in May 2019. It will be a one-day event filled with great speakers, breakout sessions and, of course, networking opportunities. Be on the lookout for more details about the conference and upcoming events on our Instagram and Facebook pages.
Sincere thanks to each and every one of you for your continued support of AMA Hawaii. And thank you to the board for trusting me to be your chapter president.
Looking forward to having an AMAzing year!
Casie Bui, President
American Marketing Association Hawaii
