Our mission is to establish and nurture a program that supports the growth of participants along a core set of values: service leadership, content-driven knowledge sharing through a highly relevant intellectual agenda, and an experience-rich community.

AMA Cincinnati is the essential community for connecting and inspiring marketing professionals across the Cincinnati, Dayton, and Northern Kentucky region. And the bedrock of any community is the relationships that form and grow within it.

During the 2022-23 chapter year, AMA Cincinnati is piloting a mentorship program to help provide structure and helpful content to guide 10 pairs of mentor-mentee relationships.

The structure of this program facilitates an application process for interested mentees and matches them with a mentor based on their stated strengths, passions, interests and/or areas of curiosity. There will be opportunities for all pairs to come together and connect, yet the shape and modality of independent connections between each mentor-mentee pair are up to the participants themselves.

The helpful content of this program encompasses regular check-ins and educational opportunities around career and professional development and making the most of mentor-mentee relationships.
