AMA Chicago Announces New Career Development and Coaching Groups for Early and Experienced Professionals

Date:

Registration now open and includes year-long AMA Chicago membership

Starting in February 2023, AMA Chicago is expanding its professional development opportunities with new career development groups - led by certified coaches who are also marketers. In a small group of peers, participants will develop career goals, identify their leadership styles and build out the next steps in their careers. 

"With our new career development groups, AMA Chicago is delivering on what Chicagoland marketers tell us they want," said Leslie Marshall, AMA Chicago President. "Our chapter has always been a place to build your skills, expand your network and explore all that marketing entails. Now, we're offering specific career development groups, targeted to your needs based on where you are in your career so that members can grow personally and professionally while learning from a certified coach and their peers. It's the 360-degree learning that we're all used to, built by and for marketers." 

Marketers in the first three to eight years of their career will be in a group led by Paula McLeod, CPCC, PCC. The group is built around gaining insight into strengths, weaknesses and values so that you can create a marketing career that is satisfying to you. Through group and individual work, members will better understand how their preferences make for a fulfilling work experience. The group is for people currently employed; it will not be focused on job-searching skills. 

The second career development group is built for more seasoned marketers who want to grow their leadership. Led by Beryl Greenberg, CPCC (aka Coach Beryl), the "Up Your Leadership Executive Coaching Program" group will meet virtually over six months, starting with one-hour meetings weekly and then moving to every other week. The program is limited to 12 participants. 

Both the early career and experienced groups are developed with busy schedules, tight budgets and a desire to learn in mind. That means:

  • Virtual Meetings. All meetings are held via Zoom to save travel time, and both programs offer dedicated Slack channels for ongoing connection. (The executive group will first connect via an app, then Slack.)
  • Diverse Peers. Groups are segmented by career experience, but not specialty. Each will include professionals from a range of industries and skillsets, so you're learning new things from each other and building a diverse network.
  • Marketing Experts. Both Beryl and Paula are former marketers who specialize in coaching marketers. Their guidance isn't general - it's specific to our work, career trajectories and needs.
  • Small Groups. These groups are limited (15 early career marketers, 12 executives) to hit the sweet spot of group learning and individual sharing.
  • Discounts & Membership. This is a unique opportunity to experience career and executive coaching on a group scale - with group pricing discounts that put this career development opportunity within reach. Plus, registration for either group includes 12 months of AMA Chicago membership (for existing members, that means 12 months added to your current expiration date).

Registration is open for both career development groups and ends Feb 13. Groups begin meeting Feb 27. Pricing ranges from $595 to $3,900 and includes 12 months of membership in the American Marketing Association Chicago Chapter.

AMA Chicago, the largest professional chapter in the American Marketing Association's North American network, is 85 years strong. AMA provides ongoing development opportunities for Chicagoland marketers to expand knowledge, improve skills, and grow careers through access to innovative marketing thought leaders and cutting-edge programming.

Proxymity and FIS Roll Out Multinational Digital Proxy Voting Service, to Boost Capital Markets Firms’ Active Governance

FIS Proxy Voting by Proxymity provides an end-to-end digital proxy voting solution for FIS customers

Proxymity, the leading digital investor communication platform, today announced its collaboration with FIS® to launch FIS Proxy Voting by Proxymity. The digital proxy voting service connects issuers, intermediaries, and investors ensuring that investor communications are delivered in real-time.

Rapidly increasing cost pressures amidst an unpredictable economic environment necessitates a reliable, intuitive solution to investor demand for increased transparency. This solution allows businesses to take better control of investor communication and proxy voting, backed by a subscription-based global technology solution. "This new service with FIS offers excellence in transparency, with communications occurring instantly," said Jonathan Smalley, Co-Founder and COO of Proxymity.

Tapping into the service will allow FIS clients to benefit from an end-to-end digital connection that is expected to improve their shareholders' voting experiences by facilitating instant distribution of meeting announcements. 

The new service will also enable FIS clients to establish extended deadlines and provide them with an enhanced confirmation procedure. Proxymity's research has revealed that, upon adoption of its digital proxy voting solution, votes arrive with issuer more than 48 hours earlier and usually show a deadline improvement of up to six days on average, when compared to traditional paper-based processes. 

This proxy voting service supports active governance with issuers contributing to the fulfilment of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals and Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II) regulatory requirements. FIS banking and capital markets clients will benefit from the very best investor relations solutions, saving time and money by sending votes in real-time to issuers or their agents, and receiving verifiable digital proof that their shareholders' votes have been cast.

Capital markets firms without a digital proxy solution could benefit significantly from this solution, with the recent FIS Global Innovation Report showing that 75% of global executives from capital markets firms believe ESG offers an opportunity to improve competitiveness in the market.

Tony Warren, Head of Strategy and Solutions Management for Capital Markets, FIS said, "Efficient corporate governance is key to our business and that of our clients, and we believe that this new service will strengthen this proposition and could reduce costs for several issuers at this critical time. This new solution is another example of how FIS fulfills its mission: Advancing the way the World Pays, Banks and Invests."

Jonathan Smalley, Co-Founder and COO, Proxymity, said: "The benefits of this collaboration between FIS and Proxymity will be felt keenly among businesses eager to eradicate inefficiencies in their current channels. The primary goal must be to ensure investor communications are seamless and swift, which FIS Proxy Voting by Proxymity will guarantee. We look forward to seeing the fruits of this collaboration."
