We’re excited to share that members of the ABLE team will be attending the 2018 AAM Summit in Portland, Oregon this week!
What is the AAM?
The Association for Accounting Marketing (AAM) has been a source of education, community, and resources for the accounting industry since 1989. The organization’s stated mission is
“to promote excellence and elevate the professional stature of marketing, business development, and other practice growth professionals at all career levels directly impacting members’ professional development and careers through education, networking, and thought leadership to grow both people and accounting practices.”
Since 2002, AAM has hosted—or partnered in hosting—an annual summit gathering where attendees can network, learn from their industry peers, and be inspired. The theme of this year’s 16th annual summit is “Think Fresh!” The goals of the 2018 AAM Summit, as stated on their website, are as follows:
Break the Mold: To create a conference that challenges previous formats, content, and perceived barriers to create the most valuable experience for our attendees.
Connection: To create opportunities for like-minded individuals to collaborate and connect at many points during the conference in innovative ways.
Cutting-Edge Education: To bring in unparalleled speakers with unique presentation formats to deliver fresh content with actionable takeaways.
The Think Fresh! 2018 AAM Summit will take place in Portland, Oregon from May 14-17, 2018. For more information on the AAM and the organization’s annual conference, visit accountingmarketing.org.
