Chicago AMA names 2015 All-Stars: Our Board Member and Volunteer of the Year

Last Thursday on one of our now common dreary, rainy days, 75 chapter volunteers brought some pent-up cheer to Clayco Headquarters to celebrate their hard work in 2015 at our annual Volunteer Appreciation party.

The beautiful, modern and bright space was the perfect venue for drinks, tasty nosh and the presentation of our Volunteer of the Year and Board Member of the Year. As Chicago AMA is a volunteer-run organization, this event is extremely important in recognizing the many people who have done incredible work to help improve and grow the chapter.

Volunteer of the Year

Volunteer of the Year went to Tammy DeMarco, our committee chair for the highly successful BrandSmart event. As the largest annual event in Chicago AMA’s large portfolio of programming, it’s a high stakes production that relies on long hours, many meetings and tireless efforts to execute effectively. We’re grateful for her donation of such time and energy to Chicago AMA.

Board Member of the Year was given to Michelle Batten, VP of the Special Interest Groups which have become one of the most robust and valuable communities within the chapter. Her work in organizing dozens of events across many marketing disciplines brought attendees and volunteers together in a way that was unique to many associations in the city and has grown this valuable element of AMA Membership.


A Few More Thanks

In addition to the appreciation for our many 2015 volunteers, a big thanks goes out to Clayco for sponsoring the venue and Lagunita’s Brewing Company for providing a Little

Sumpin’ Sumpin’ (the beer) for our attendees.
