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.

Board of Directors
The BCAMA Board of Directors is made up of a group of industry experts who volunteer their time to ensure the association runs smoothly. BCAMA board members bring dedication and expertise to our organization, and we are so grateful for their contributions to our community and culture.
We encourage BCAMA members to support and show their appreciation to the Board throughout the year. Our association is founded on the passion and perseverance of forward-thinking people and we hope our members can continue this tradition into the future.
The BCAMA Board acknowledges, honours and thanks the marketing leaders in our community – our past presidents – who have helped to guide us to become the thriving professional marketing association that we are today.
