Volunteer

There are many ways to help!

Volunteering is one of the most rewarding ways to engage and connect with others in your profession. You’ll build skills, experience and your network. Plus you’ll help drive the agenda and contribute to the growth of others in Alaska’s marketing community. If you are interested in volunteering, please email info@amaalaska.org to start a conversation about how you can get help.

The chapter’s fiscal year runs from July to June, which is the time period board members hold roles. But, throughout the year we are always looking for volunteers to help and it’s easy to get involved. Depending on the amount of time you have available, your volunteer goals and the talents you have to contribute or grow, we have a position for you. Below is a list of open positions and great place to start.
