 Northeast Regional Conference


          The American Marketing Association Collegiate Chapters have a history of Regional Conferences, which provided a strong impetus to enhanced chapter performance and increased communication among the chapters.  Pace University hosted Tri-State Conferences the past three years, and this year has expanded the conference, in cooperation with Hofstra University, to include the entire Northeast Region.  This conference re-establishes the tradition of regional meetings and cooperation.


          This year we were happy to present our 1st Annual Northeast Regional Conference.  The conference took place in Pace Univeristy's Student Union on November 17th & 18th.  This event had a successful turnout of 135 students and a total of 17 Universities attend this conference.  Not only have we given students the opportunity to network with other business students but also to network with professionals.  We included professional speakers such as Christopher Stavrakos, SVP and Division Manager for Wells Fargo, Renata Luczak from Comedy Central and Joe Allen, Chief creative Officer and Partner of

We look forward in continuing this annual conference.
