The Southwest NAMA Chapter shares news from the recent NAMA Annual conference held in Kansas City, April 21-23.
The Southwest Chapter hosted a reception for their Student NAMA groups from TX A&M, TX A&M Kingsville, Sam Houston State and New Mexico State Universities. The reception was held on Tuesday, April 20, and it was fun to share the enthusiasm and excitement the students brought to the evening – in preparation for their marketing presentations the next day!
Every chapter performed in the Student Marketing competition with exemplary expertise and enthusiasm – reminding all attendees how rewarding careers in this industry are. To put the “icing on the cake” New Mexico State University took home first place! The students created a marketing plan for introducing a specialized saddle designed to eliminate pressure points and saddle fit problems into the rodeo market. While this isn’t the first time the team has won the top prize, it has been several years since they have brought home first place! (Read more and see photos at the NAMA blog.)
Congrats to the members of all these chapters for their hard work, enthusiasm and dedication. The Southwest NAMA Chapter is proud to be host Chapter of the winning team!
Thanks to all the students for representing your schools and the Southwest chapter!
