A group of University of Nevada, Reno students is one of eight finalists who will compete in the American Marketing Association’s (AMA) 29th Annual International Collegiate Conference March 29 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Over 47 universities, in the U.S. and Canada, entered this competition, and each developed an Integrated Marketing Plan designed to revitalize the tourism industry for the city of New Orleans, post Hurricane Katrina. The winning teams will present their plan during the conference and one overall winner will be selected.

UNR’s AMA student chapter is in need of the community’s support. The team of dedicated students, who made this win possible, needs to travel to New Orleans to present their case, at the convention, March 29-31. We are seeking donations to help defray the cost of travel for eight students. We would greatly appreciate donations for the American Marketing Association, which can be deposited at any Wells Fargo Bank: Account number 7962435355.

The student chapter will present their case at the AMA’s luncheon on Friday, March 23, 2007, at Harrah’s convention center 11:30-1:00.
