A Note From Our Immediate Past President

“I’ve been honored to serve the AMA Madison as a board member since 2014 and as President since 2020.

Volunteering for the chapter has been an extraordinary experience. My marketing journey started as a salesperson wanting to begin a career in marketing. After finishing my undergrad in marketing as an adult, I looked at the chapter to help me build my new career. There weren’t many opportunities to practice modern digital marketing in my sales job, nor did I learn them in school when I discovered the “4 Ps!”

When I began volunteering, I joined the Communication team and learned valuable hands-on skills. That’s the beauty of volunteering for AMA; it’s a safe sandbox to learn, play and take risks that one couldn’t get in a present job.

Every day I witness and experience a fantastic sense of community. I know many who have gotten new jobs because of their connections here. I’ve seen students and young professionals flourish and advance in their careers.

You may think you don’t have time to volunteer and to join a nonprofit board.

Only busy people know how to get things done. I hope you’ll join us!”

Tony Veroeven
2020-2021 President
