WelcomSuzzane Currier, MAP President 2012e to the MAP website!  I’m Suzanne, the 2012 President of the Media Association of Pittsburgh.  Our organization has grown a lot over the past year and I’m hoping to continue that momentum into 2012.

Our core objective is giving back to the industry through several trademark events:

The MAP Live! series offers educational breakfast and lunches on a variety of topics regarding the always changing landscape.  Our MAPpy Hours offer time to unwind, network and socialize.

The Outstanding Achievement in Media Awards (OAMA) celebrates and recognizes our leaders in the local advertising community, those who have challenged and taught us how to be better.   And our Beer & Big Shot event that not only is a great time making the big shots in our industry wait on everyone else but also raises money for our Michael Wolff Scholarship Fund which we award annually.

Take a moment to look through the site, see what we have done and what’s on the docket for 2012 thus far.  And come back to visit, we update the site regularly as the year unfolds.  Who knows, your next job may be out there because you met someone at our upcoming MAPpy Hour!

As a member of MAP, you are invited to join a network of talented professionals in the media and advertising community.   We work hard and we play hard.   Why not be able to do both with others in the industry?  I invite you to not only join but please, contribute your ideas.  We have some great ideas and events planned for 2012… help us make them even better!
