NEWPORT, R.I. – Salve Regina’s chapter of the American Marketing Association received five awards during the 34th Annual International Collegiate Conference in New Orleans last month, including designation as a Top 10 chapter among 131 schools internationally.
In addition to its Top 10 “Silver Collegiate Chapter” award, Salve Regina was heralded as “The Outstanding Small School” internationally. Also, the university’s AMA placed second in the “Membership Recruitment Campaign Competition,” earned Best Event in Fall 2011 for “AMA Saves Lives” and placed fifth for the number of videos submitted for its campaign
“The outstanding performance of our American Marketing Association students is a true testament of their hard work, commitment, and dedication to being the best they can be,” said Dr. Myra Edelstein, chair of the business studies and economics department. “Working with their faculty advisors – Traci Warrington, dean of Professional Studies, and Nadia Abgrab, associate professor of marketing – the team exceled against formidable international competition. This is a true example of how our talented Salve Regina University students put their education to work.”
Salve Regina’s AMA chapter has 91 members who represent a variety of majors, and includes freshmen through seniors. This year’s chapter representatives to the international conference included seniors Alyssa Clemente, Caitlin Eastwood, and Kelsey Jacobsen; and juniors Jamie Paul and Taylor Tegtmeier.
