Who We Are
We are a group of NMSU students from a diverse mix of backgrounds and majors who are interested in agribusiness marketing, personal and professional growth, hard work, and lots of fun! We work closely with faculty mentors from the Department of Agricultural Economics and Agricultural Business to hone our marketing skills and prepare for professional positions.

What We Do
The NMSU Student Chapter of the National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) serves the food & fiber industry. We focus on our members' professional development by providing access to solutions and opportunities in agribusiness.
One of our primary accomplishments is the annual National Marketing Competition. We are very competitive: in 2010, NMSU's Student Chapter won the national competition with our marketing plan for a customized saddle company.
Why Join Us?
Learn first-hand from professionals in marketing, advertising, communications, promotion, sales, and public relations the various career opportunities available in agri-marketing. Students are then in a better position to select a career that best fits their interests and talents.
Develop valuable personal contacts and working relations between the students and agri-marketing professionals. These contacts provide access to internships, co-op programs, job interviews, referrals, business recommendations and career opportunities.
Provide meaningful opportunities for students to practice their managerial skills (planning, organizing, directing, coordinating and controlling) and to demonstrate their leadership abilities.
Attend monthly professional chapter meetings, seminars and social events and assist various professional chapter chairs in planning and implementing chapter projects. These meetings provide students the opportunity to become highly visible as prospects for employment after graduation.
Attend the annual Agri-Marketing Conference and participate in activities including TEAM NAMA, the National Marketing Competition, Outstanding Student Chapter Competition and ABEF Scholarship Awards. Attending the conference provides students with an opportunity to establish personal contacts with marketing professionals throughout the United States and Canada. These contacts are valuable sources for career opportunities.
Assist in making the transition from being a student to becoming a business professional.
