GOVERNOR’S FORUM “All Aboard: Embarking on a Marketing Journey”
The Philippine Junior Marketing Association held its very first event for the academic year 2014-2015 last June 22, 2014 at the Pavilion, Ilustrata Residences with number of attendees surpassing what was expected. PJMA’s premier event was the Governor’s Forum entitled “All Aboard: Embarking on a Marketing Journey” which was attended by over 165 junior marketing leaders of member schools from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
The presidents as well as other officers of local Junior Marketing Associations from across the country gathered on this special day to meet, dine and get to know not just with one another but also with the National Executive Board. Participants engaged in team-building activities and they were serenaded by one of our very own. The event’s keynote speaker was Ms. Mary Faith Abano, the VP for Youth and Academe of the Philippine Marketing Association and General Manager of Celestial Media Services Incorporated. The students were also very excited to hear and learn inspiring thoughts from a very notable speaker, Mr. Jayson Lo who talked about being “Younique” and who has clearly touched and moved the junior marketers.
The event’s highlight was the discussion of the PJMA Calendar of Activities for the whole year. The National Executive Board discussed all the plans and events for the year which hopefully induced excitement, interest and support from these young leaders. Lastly, the Governors themselves were able to share one by one their goals and aspirations for their respect Junior Marketing Associations for the A.Y. 2014-2015.
Overall, the event was indeed a success with participants leaving happy and satisfied.
