Partnership Between AMA-PDX and PRSA Portland

To AMA-PDX and PRSA Portland members,

It’s Elaine Volpe and Mark Mohammadpour, your presidents for AMA-PDX and PRSA Portland. We’re excited to announce a new member benefit for both memberships!

A few months ago, we met for coffee and Pip’s Donuts on NE Fremont, a small, family run business that celebrates the #CommunityNotCompetition way to do business.

It was inspiring as we discussed how we can better serve our own members. Whether you have a marketing, communications or public relations title, in an integrated marketing communications environment, there’s more to learn from our collective community.

That’s why this week our organizations signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that will allow our members to attend each other’s events at member pricing.

So, if you are an AMA-PDX member, you can attend PRSA Portland events at the PRSA member rate. If you are a PRSA Portland member, you can attend AMA-PDX events at the AMA member rate. For AMA-PDX and PRSA Portland events, that is an average savings of $10!

For instance, here are a few events upcoming:

If there are any questions, please feel free to email Mark Mohammadpour at, or Elaine Volpe at

We look forward to connecting these two groups, sharing best practices and making new connections!


At your service,

Elaine Volpe
