programs and unique member benefits. It’s a great way to use your sales skills and get to know more about local B2B companies.

The Website committee works on strategy, planning, and maintenance for our website, including web pages to promote our social, educational, and networking events and programs. Members of the
committee work within our content management system, as well as with vendors on special requests. They also occasionally work with partners, members, and other board and committee
members on content. The team considers and updates metadata for search engine optimization.
The Membership committee plans and implements acquisition and retention programs, represents The Marketing Alliance at trade shows and local events, and “talks up” membership at
monthly educational programs. The membership team looks for passionate members of the organization to help us recruit and welcome new members.
