Message From Our President, David Wilson


I am honored and excited to serve as the 2014-15 Birmingham AMA President and to be a part of this group of dynamic leaders within our local marketing community. No other organization in Alabama connects as many marketers with as many opportunities as the Birmingham AMA. It’s certainly a great time to be a marketer and an even more exciting time to be a leader in this amazing organization. We have expanded our board to its largest size ever, and I would like to congratulate our talented new board of officers and VP/Chairs

As we enter our 56th year (yeah, 56!), we have not only positioned the chapter as the resource for marketing in the central Alabama region, but as a model turnaround chapter for other chapters across the country.
A couple of our goals are to win the AMA “Turn Around Chapter of the Year” for 2014-15 and win the AMA “Best in Class” for 2015-16. This current momentum has been inspired by a great group leaders and an energetic group of new board members. We also have plans to be nationally recognized for outstanding programming, membership, collegiate relations and leadership.
The Birmingham AMA has so many new and exciting things planned for this year, it’s hard to know where to start. We will be building on the momentum.

Let’s start with our 2014-15 Vision: We will be the “go to” organization for learning, professional development and networking for marketers in central Alabama!
All of our activities will drive our three key priorities (the “WHY AMA”):

  • LEARN about the latest marketing tactics and strategies
  • CONNECT with peers, prospects and marketing leaders
  • ADVANCE your professional development

We cannot achieve these goals without the continued support and participation of our volunteers. Volunteers are at the heart of our association and we welcome you to become involved in one of our committees. Find out more about volunteer opportunities and get involved today! Go to (p.s. it’s a newly redesigned cool site…).
It’s going to be a remarkable year and I look forward to seeing familiar faces, making new connections and continuing to grow our fantastic marketing community.
Please feel free to contact me directly at with your questions and feedback.
Also, connect with me @dewmarketing and at!!
Best Regards
David Wilson
