Martketer recognizes the value of being part of the community, and as per our Mission, we want to be a positive, socially focused addition to our industry and city. We are so grateful to be a part of several integral organizations that focus on business, innovation, and community. Here are some organizations in our network that we are inspired by.
The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce is a member-driven organization dedicated to connecting, serving and empowering the Kelowna business community. The Chamber provides numerous services to attract businesses including educational seminars and major events, member benefits, government advocacy for small business support, and economic inclusion. The Chamber addresses and enforces the importance of community exposure, awareness, and connections.
Martketer is so happy to have similar ideals as the Chamber, as addressing the support of local businesses, Young People in Business, and the Women’s Leadership Network is very important to our company. Martketers is also grateful to have been awarded the 2015 Kelowna Chamber of Commerce Marketer of the Year Award.
The American Marketing Association commits itself to promoting the highest standard of professional ethical norms and values for its members (practitioners, academics, and students). AMA offers members a robust perspective that understands marketers are expected to provide both solutions for today and solutions for tomorrow. This organization provides ways for marketers and academics to connect with the people and resources they need to be successful. The AMA strives to be the most relevant force and voice shaping marketing around the world; an essential community for marketers.
The BC Chapter of the American Marketing Association has been this province’s leading marketing source since 1955 and is one of the most highly regarded chapters in North America. The BCAMA is made up of over 500 members and has a contact database of over 3,000 BC marketing, advertising, and communications professionals. For over 50 years, BCAMA has contributed to the growth and education of the BC marketing community.
Martketer is excited to be part of an innovative, industry-leading association and its chapter that strives to maintain best practices and elevate the growth of marketing.
Vancity Business Babes is one of Greater Vancouver’s largest networks of young, professional women. The organization hosts monthly events and workshops for the purpose of education, connection, and inspiration. With a focus on collaboration – not competition – as a core founding principle, the organization creates mutually beneficial opportunities to help one another succeed. Vancity Business Babes fosters community building, the sharing of ideas, and the strengthening of bridges between people and businesses.
Martketer is so thrilled to be a member of this inspiring organization. Attending seminars and listening to entrepreneurial female guest speakers reinforces Martketers drive to be a positive contributor to the industry.
UBC Alumni is a key part of Martketers history and success, with our founding members graduating from the university and maintaining connections to the institution. Martketers has hosted seminars and guest lectured in classrooms as well as attended alumni events. We are happy to give back to the university as it is a champion for local student and young professional success. Attending the UBC seminars proves that you never really stop learning.
Thanks to all the organizations that Martketer is connected to, our company continues to learn and grow due to the support, leadership and inspiration we are nurtured with, in turn, succeeding in accomplishing our Mission.
