BU Faculty Member Named AMA Member of the Month
Assistant Professor of Marketing at Bellevue University Randa Zalman is the Omaha Chapter of the American Marketing Association’s Member of the Month.
"I appreciate that the AMA membership has a diverse and robust membership blend of agency, in-house, vendor partners and academics,” Zalman said. “The luncheon, webinar and workshop topics are very timely and full of good, actionable content. It’s a powerful membership network; everyone is very welcoming."
Founded in 1959, the AMA Omaha is the local Chapter of the American Marketing Association, the world’s largest nonprofit marketing association with more than 30,000 members, according to the organization’s website. For almost 60 years, AMA Omaha has been the leading network for local marketing professionals and continues to serve the Omaha community to advance the practice of marketing by providing a forum for discussion and on key issues impacting marketing professionals.
AMA Omaha continues to be supportive of Bellevue University and its students. Marketing professors in the College of Business share AMA events and membership information to encourage marketing students to learn more about their craft and connect with other professionals. Professors also encourage AMA Pinnacles Award submissions, as this is a great way to recognize and reinforce good marketing work.
“AMA Omaha has been helpful in making BU’s marketing students' resumes stronger,” Zalman said.
