Our overall goal is to provide enriching opportunities for members to grow as professionals through hands-on experience, events, and workshops. Members have the chance to attend speaker events to learn about best practices in marketing and potential career paths in the industry. This year, we are also hosting the 4th annual Undergraduate Marketing Conference (UMC) to foster an environment that allows students to network with industry professionals from a variety of backgrounds.
