UP JMA Week: The Takeover
This February, the UP Junior Marketing Association is turning 56. And we’re inviting you to celebrate with us at our biggest birthday yet! Join us at UP JMA Week: The Takeover happening from February 1 – 8, 2014.
The organization is growing and is continuing to age, but its stories live on. Tales of its 56 years of excellence will be remembered and be told. New memories will be made and a new chapter of the JMA story will be written. UP JMA Week: The Takeover will feature a week-long series of innovative events that will show you just what JMA is all about.
