Why We Changed
Many thanks and appreciation to the previous leadership which led AIMA for 20 amazing years. But like the rest of the world, marketing has changed. And 2020 changed things a lot. So we paused, took a long look at ourselves and had many discussions that unearthed a hard reality. We needed to change things if we wanted to stay relevant.
While there are many places to learn best practices and listen to thought leaders, there really hasn’t been any true community of marketers who looked to each other for camaraderie, support or meaningful conversations. A community where we can inspire and celebrate each other. Worry less about “how” and focus on nurturing our “why”.
