Why join AMA?
AMA has been supporting the sector for 25 years. We’re focused on bringing the most relevant training and resources to you, to help you build relationships between audiences and your organisation.
We run training on a range of topics, and also regular programmes such as the Audience Diversity Academy, Digital Lab (formerly Digital Marketing Academy), to make sure you have the latest information and skills to make impact in your role. We also help organisations to change through programmes for leaders, like Small Scale Development Programme and Breakthrough.
Our membership team works to produce research and resources that support our members in their work, and help our member reps across the UK bring people together to share learning. Annual events like the AMA Conference, Audiences & Inclusivity Day, and Digital Marketing Day bring many members together with industry experts.
“My predecessor left a note saying the first thing you must do is join the AMA so I did, and I’ve never looked back.”
