On Thursday, you’ll have the opportunity to meet representatives from other chapters at one of the most exciting (and fun!) networking sessions ever planned. Thursday night, we will officially kick off the conference with a high-energy motivating session that will be inspirational to all. Casual attire on Thursday means everyone should be wearing his or her chapter/school T-shirts. We’ll be in New Orleans—but forget the beads! Bring an extra chapter/school T-shirt and trade with another school to get the coolest shirts at the conference. You’ll also have an opportunity to meet recruiters in special roundtable discussions that are sure to jump-start your career.
On Friday, we will kick off with an updated and improved Career Corner Breakfast featuring over 12 recruiters. Meet the recruiters and sign up for one-on-one interviews! We have gathered some of the best to share their stories and tips for success. You will have networking opportunities with industry veterans, recruiting opportunities, and the choice of more than 10 speakers throughout the day. The day will be business casual and will include breakfast and lunch.
On Saturday, we will finish with sessions on how to improve your chapter and yourself. On Saturday night, everyone will attend the traditional business attire banquet where we will announce the top 16 chapters of 2008–09. Make your accommodations accordingly; the banquet ends at 8:30pm.
We will be photographing and videotaping the entire conference, so bring your smiles, your resumes and all your fellow AMA members.
We have many new programs and fun networking events you won’t want to miss. Plan to join us at the Hilton Riverside in New Orleans on March 26–28, 2009 for the ultimate celebration of your collegiate AMA experience.
