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:

  • Making Connections: The Payoff of Paying Attention – AMA-PDX’s September 13 luncheon at Bridgeport Brewing Company featuring Jennifer Davis, chief marketing officer of Leyard
  • MAX Awards – AMA-PDX’s annual marketing excellence awards party on September 22 at The Colony
  • Swine & Dine Networking Event – AMA-PDX’s October 19 Blind Pig Networking Brigade event at Wacom Experience Center
  • Hacking Brainstorming: How to Spark Your Team’s Creativity – AMA-PDX’s November 2 Professional Development event at Urban Airship featuring Phil Herbert, Strategy Lead for eROI
  • Meet the Media – PRSA’s Sept. 22 event at The Oregonian with Jeff Manning.
  • PRSA Spotlight Awards – Our chapter’s annual recognition of the best in public relations. We’ll be celebrating on Thursday night, October 6 at Portland State University.

If there are any questions, please feel free to email Mark Mohammadpour at markmohammadpour@gmail.com, or Elaine Volpe at elaine.volpe101@gmail.com.

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