ASMP – Ohio Valley Chapter Program_How to get Work from Ad Agencies

September 9th, 2010  |  Published in Events

Raise your hand if you’re just like me and you’ve almost totally given up on getting another job from an Ad Agency.

I see a lot of hands in the air!

Ok, If I told you that you could better your chances right now, would you take action on it?

Don’t say I never gave you nothin’. Here you go!!

Join Debra Weiss and guests on Thursday September 23rd @ 6:30 p.m. at the Columbus College of Art and Design for an information packed evening with two Art Buyers and a Creative Director. Hear directly from the sources on what is needed to make it as an advertising photographer. Gain insight into what it takes to get their attention, how they choose the photographers they work with and how to build lasting beneficial relationships. You’ll hear their honest and frank perspectives on how you can succeed in this rapidly shifting and increasingly impersonal business.

Can you afford not to attend this program?

Look at that, your’re back in with the agencies again for just a mere penance.

Non Members – $50

Forum Deux
The entire second season of the NOCA ONE INDUSTRY forums has been set.  The first Forum – titled, “Marketing the Arts,” will be Wednesday, October 2, 2010 at The Plain Dealer – 1801 Superior Avenue.  The cost is $20 per person.  Online registrations may be made here.

The second forum, scheduled for November 10, will focus on the perspectives of several local PR pros as to how our community can/should handle the return of LeBron, the Decision-Maker.  That should stoke a Heated discussion.

Improve Yourself
If you work in marketing communications you have two opportunities to improve your professional standing.

The first is a four-part series on “Post Recession Communications” presented by the School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Kent State.  The program includes two, full-day seminars on Kent’s main campus, and two, 90-minute webinars.  Full information is available at:

The second is the Social Media Lab which was designed to be a “think tank” on social media for Cleveland, Ohio.  In partnership with Virginia Marti College, the Lab is targeted toward business owners, managers and individuals.  More information.
