FAQs 

 

Who is the best person to talk to so I can learn more?
We are a friendly, approachable bunch! Feel free to contact any of our Board Members, Committee Chairs, committee members or join us for an event. We’d be happy to make some introductions and get you involved!

What makes PSMA different from other marketing associations?
PSMA is geared to people who do not market a tangible product, but rather a service. PSMA also covers a broad range of marketing duties, such as PR, event planning, and social media, in addition to traditional marketing planning and tactics. We’ve kept the cost reasonable because many of our members belong to other professional associations and have found that the PSMA complements their professional networks.
