What does my membership include?
With your membership, you have the opportunity to attend all of our biweekly meetings for the year (food provided) where we have speakers from our sponsors and other large companies. You also gain entrance to all of our networking and professional events, career fairs, and company campus visits at no additional cost.

How can I go to New Orleans?
At the end of each school year, our Executive Board (and a few of our most involved members) get to travel to New Orleans for the AMA International Collegiate Conference. Applicants who have served as directors or have received a lot of points due to their involvement are strongly considered.
