Midsouth NAMA Seeks Help for Students

Written by NAMA on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 , 1:10 pm

You may know that your Midsouth NAMA Chapter supports students from Mississippi State and University of Tennessee-Martin in their quest to win the national student marketing competition at the annual meeting in April.

This year, however, the Midsouth chapter is giving each team a little extra help: a crash course in NAMA Student Marketing Competition 101!  And we need your help.

Next week, both teams will be coming to Memphis to introduce the initial ideas for their products and hope to get feedback from professionals like you!

We’ll be breaking the teams up (so they can keep their product/plan confidential) throughout the afternoon:

  • one team will meet first with an “evaluation panel” — we’ll take a hard look at their product and plan
  • the other team will meet a “presentation team” — students will be able to review videos and Executive Summaries from previous national finalists and will be able to brush up on general PowerPoint and presentation skills.

Date: Wednesday, January 21
Time: 2 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Location: archer>malmo, 65 Union Ave. (Cotton Exchange Building)
5th Floor Parking: Park in Parking Can Be Fun — bring your ticket to a>m for validation What we need from you:

  • If your schedule allows, join us next Wednesday at archer>malmo to help meet with the students and set them on the road to victory. You can be a part of the evaluation panel or the presentation team — your choice!  And if you can’t make it the entire afternoon, we still appreciate any time you can spare.
  • If you can help: contact Megan Klein (mklein@archermalmo.com) or Brad Allen (allenb@helenachemical.com) for details.

Thanks for your help…we know the students will appreciate your support!
