Who is a rising star in your marketing department?

The ANA wants to recognize and reward the brightest young talent of our member companies. At our Masters of Marketing Conference, we will once again present the Rising Marketing Star Award to the future leaders of the marketing community.

We invite you to nominate the young people in your marketing organization who have shown competence, aptitude, leadership, and professionalism in the field of marketing.

The winners of the Rising Marketing Star Award should act as role models for other up-and-coming marketers across the industry. It is a terrific opportunity for someone at your company, as the winners carry the recognition this award conveys throughout their careers.

Approximately six weeks prior to the Masters of Marketing Conference, the ANA will select four individuals, 30 years of age or younger, who demonstrate outstanding potential as marketers. The 2017 Rising Marketing Stars winning class will be honored on stage during the conference. They will be given complimentary registration and have the opportunity to sit in on all ANA sessions.Please note that travel and expenses associated with the conference are not included.

Regards,
Duke Fanelli | Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer | ANA
