American Marketing Association Buffalo Shirt Sale

The Canisius College American Marketing Association (CCAMA) attends the National Collegiate Marketing Conference each spring in New Orleans, LA.  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. This year we have a single design consisting of the Buffalo skyline, 716 in roman numerals and in the Zubaz pattern. We have three different color options for the Sabres, Bills and Bandits!

In addition, CCAMA is recognized as an outstanding chapter for its performance on and off campus. CCAMA completes community service with Camp Good Days and the Ronald McDonald House.  On campus, CCAMA provides members with opportunities to grow professionally. Those opportunities include tours of local businesses and workshops.

It is important for CCAMA to attend the National Conference because the experiences give 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!

Visit the shop tab on www.ccama.weebly.com to make your purchase and help bring CCAMA to New Orleans! The orders will arrive at the CCAMA clubroom within the first two weeks of November. Look out for an email from CCAMA to know when you can come pick up your order!
