2006 Marketing Competition Winners - PurdueA unique and valuable component of NAMA is the Student NAMA organization. Many of our professional members got their first taste of our industry through their involvement in Student NAMA. You may have even personally benefited from your participation in the New Products Marketing Competition or your college NAMA chapter.

The success of Student NAMA relies on the generous support from volunteer professionals. There are a number of ways you can help support this worthy cause both at the local and national level.

Below is a list of ways you can volunteer at the national level:

Agri-Marketing Conference Mentoring
Offer your professional insight to students at the NAMA Conference luncheon. Volunteer professionals commit to lunching with students interested in learning more about their profession. This informal interaction is a great chance to exchange ideas with the future of agri-marketing. Time commitment – 1-2 hours (lunch on April 20)

Student Marketing Competition support
Monitor rooms, keep time, and assist general operations at competition. Volunteers commit to assisting the successful operation of the student marketing competition at NAMA Conference. This is a great chance to observe schools as they present their new product marketing plans in the preliminary, semifinals, and final rounds. This is also a great place to start your involvement with Student NAMA. Time commitment – 4-8 hours (April 18, 19, 20 – various times available)

Student Marketing Competition judging

Five years professional experience required. Time commitment – 4-10 hours (April 18, 19, 20 — various times available)
