The Hawai‘i chapter of the American Marketing Association was established in July 1970.
Hawai‘i is home to some of the most creative and innovative marketing professionals in the nation, working with a variety of organizations from local start-ups to non-profits to globally-recognized brands, and everything in between. Hawai‘i’s market is uniquely different from nearly everywhere else in the world and our chapter provides support in navigating through the challenges and opportunities our marketers face.
