The Association Marketing Academy was a worthwhile investment of time. I was able to take at least three tips from every session to implement in my day-to-day job tasks. Although it was a virtual course the conversation and networking with the other attendees through the chat feature and LinkedIn was better than most in-person events.

I really enjoyed the 10-week Association Digital Marketing Certificate Course! What I appreciated the most was the follow-up emails that included additional reading materials and links to the class recording and presentation materials, and the guest presenters.

This was a very useful set of lessons, with lots of audience participation and a touch of humor. For this less than a novice on the topic, I learned a lot and hope to be able to remember enough to put into practice. But there are the handouts and recommended readings for review. I highly recommend it.

I absolutely love the instructor. It’s so easy to keep everyone engaged and on topic! He was very knowledgeable about every subject. I do wish we’d gone more in depth about how to run successful ads and maybe done some exercises on copywriting.

The course provided a solid overview of digital marketing. There wasn't time to go into much depth or offer hands-on experience with assignments- which I think the attendees would have benefitted from. Overall, I recommend- Chris is very knowledgeable and engaging and Tom keeps him on schedule. 🙂

loved the energy this class had, the slides were well done and easy to understand. It definitely would be worthwhile for a student to have some marketing terminology going into it. Very fast paced and tons of content. All in all, really enjoyed the class and happy to have the recordings to watch after.

Chris G and the team do a wonderful job of presenting complicated concepts in a way that's easy to understand and implement (and actually somehow fun!). Marketing is not my primary role, and even at a semi-beginner level, I had no trouble keeping up. Not only will you receive helpful tips and tools, you'll gain a new network of industry colleagues.

The ten week course offered by Association Marketing Academy was an excellent investment of my time. I was familiar with many of the concepts, but it was nevertheless helpful to have them taught/presented differently, which really helped reinforce the information. Chris was an excellent class facilitator.

This course was fabulous! Although I know a fair amount about digital marketing I learned something in each class that I can use in my day to day work. There were so many good ideas shared in the course and through participants I really looked forward to the weekly course and the surprise guest speaker. Chris made the class fun too. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to get a LOT of useful information for association digital marketing!
