The Canisius College American Marketing Association (CCAMA) attends the National Collegiate Marketing Conference each spring in New Orleans, Louisiana. Members participate in several competitions and workshops to help build their marketing and business knowledge. CCAMA not only brings several awards home each year, including best videos in social impact competitions, but placed first overall for the past four years!
CCAMA is currently selling long-sleeved and short-sleeved Buffalo-themed shirts for $20 until Monday, October 31 to help offset the cost of travel for students. The shirts will arrive at the CCAMA Clubroom on main campus within the first two weeks of November. Emails will be sent out when shirts are ready for pick-up!
In addition, CCAMA is recognized as an outstanding chapter for their performance on and off campus. CCAMA completes community service with Camp Good Days and the Ronald McDonald House. On campus, CCAMA provides its members with opportunities to grow professionally, including tours of local businesses workshops for members.
It is important for CCAMA to attend the National Conference because the experiences gives members opportunities for success outside of Buffalo through networking, cultural diffusion and individual growth. The conference also allows for Canisius College to gain a national recognition for its business and marketing abilities.
CCAMA fundraises throughout the year to support students hoping to travel. Supporting CCAMA will increase their chances to bring as many dedicated members to the conference as possible and bring home first place yet again!
