Students and faculty from NNU’s School of Business traveled to New Orleans in the spring to learn with and compete against over 200 collegiate chapters of the American Marketing Association (AMA). Dr. Konya Weber, professor of marketing and the chapter advisor, along with leadership team members Elizabeth Gross and Linnea Hanson, attended sessions directed by marketing directors and CMO’s of corporations from throughout the nation.
As part of the closing ceremonies, awards were presented to chapters who had excelled throughout the year. NNU’s chapter was honored with the ‘Outstanding Chapter Plan’ award, placing it in the top 17% of chapters nationwide. The award recognizes the growth and success of the chapter in its endeavors throughout the past academic year.

Dr. Weber is pleased with the success of the chapter and excited for what the next year will hold. “We had an exceptional leadership team this year, and their dedication gained national recognition. As the School of Business has introduced a new marketing major, the AMA collegiate chapter will continue to benefit students in providing marketing opportunities in professional development, community service and strategic planning. I anticipate an outstanding upcoming year with the leadership team returning.”

Justin Kellerer and Josh Siverson will also be returning for the 2010-2011 year under the direction of Dr. Weber to work with this year’s leadership team, Gross and Hanson.
