A Partnership with Portland

AMA PDX is known for connecting marketing professionals all over the Portland metro area. Our members love to meet each other and learn about the latest marketing trends. Yet sometimes the most rewarding connections are with people outside of the marketing industry.

Our Community Outreach program, partners AMA PDX volunteers with local non-profits to help them achieve goals and promote their missions. Community Outreach gives volunteers the opportunity to grow their skills and give back to the community. In return, Portland’s non-profits have a chance to leverage local marketing talent, develop richer volunteer and donor bases and evolve their marketing strategies.

Are you looking for a marketing or communications position? Volunteer for the Community Outreach Program:

New to the program, through a special sponsorship by Planar Systems, this year’s AMA PDX’s volunteers will be invited to collaborate with other local marketers at two professional development working sessions.

These are the kind of connections that make Portland a better place to live, work and play!

“Anyone of us can go and volunteer the usual basic ways, but being able to help with something that I work at every day seems more personal and a better use of my volunteer time,” – Charles Bergenstock, Designer, Bergenstock Design. 

“We’d do it again! Anytime a nonprofit is given an opportunity like this, we have to take it. The fact that we were chosen is huge. It was such an honor.”  -Amy Rutherford Close, Fresh Start
