To create a community of BC marketers who make meaningful connections with one another and who grow professionally through thought leadership and and learning.

Creating a Community of BC Marketers

The BC Chapter of the American Marketing Association (BCAMA) is a not-for-profit society registered under the BC Societies Act.  The society is run by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Since 1955, the BCAMA has brought together marketers from all industries and disciplines to connect, learn, and be inspired. The BCAMA hosts events and provides programming for professionals from across all sectors — from tech and CPG to agency and corporate — to help BC marketers advance their careers. With over 350 active members, and ties to a network of over 3,000 BC marketing, advertising, and communications professionals, the BCAMA is an established professional association of like-minded marketers who all aim for a singular pursuit: success.

The BCAMA also connects members to their counterparts in key US markets thanks to an informal alliance between all west coast AMA chapters. Simply put, no other marketing organization offers more ways for marketers to get together and get ahead.
