The Colorado Branch of the American Marketing Association (Co-AMA) is a non profit with the mission of helping individuals and companies learn how to market and promote their ideas. They host a wide variety of monthly events including: networking, luncheons, a knowledge series and by-charity for-charity events. The Colorado chapter of the AMA began in 1959 and since then they have been helping marketing professionals connect and learn alongside other like-minded individuals.  Visit their website for upcoming events and information on how to become a member.

These events are very informative, welcoming and well run. On December 20th, the Co-AMA hosted a luncheon on Market Leading PR.  The luncheon was hosted at the delicious Le Grand Bistro & Oyster Bar in Downtown Denver. Lunch was included as part of the lecture. Terri Douglas and Christie Denniston, leaders at Catapult PR-IR, led the discussion.  They focused their lecture on how one can best leverage PR tools in order to rise to prominence within your industry.  They included information on how to use social media and blogging to create a positive social image and a recognizable brand.  They explained how it is easy to find ways to use the talents of your workforce to promote the image of your company. This luncheon was incredibly informative and helpful for anyone from a top PR and marketing professional to an individual hoping to launch a new idea or personal business.

The Colorado AMA is a non profit that works along side other Colorado charities. In 2012 they started a new initiative called Colorado AMA Cares. Last year they were able to gather over 150 pounds of donated non-perishable food items for the Food Bank of the Rockies. Their first charity support act of 2013 is to support heart health through good works and spreading awareness. You can help them on their mission by educating yourself on how to prevent heart disease, wearing red, or giving a donation.
