About BMA Chicago

BMA Chicago is the Business Marketing Association’s single largest chapter, serving nearly 550 business-marketing professionals through professional development, networking events, and programs. BMA Chicago enhances critical thinking, communication, and managerial skills by bringing our members face-to-face with the nation’s top B-to-B marketing thinkers and practitioners.

Our board is proud to offer you a powerful lineup of world-class marketers through our Marketing Innovators Luncheon Series. Mark your calendars for the first Thursday of each month, October through June (except January). We also host a number of other events, including our Breakfast Seminar series of monthly interactive “how to” learning sessions; Member and Young Professional events; the Tower Awards, BMA Chicago's annual creative competition recognizing excellence in B-to-B marketing; and Fuel, an evening keynote and tech expo.
