Do you want to make a meaningful contribution to the media and advertising industry? Do you feel that you can make a positive impact by contributing to the current state and future of our industry?

It’s time to form the AMASA (Advertising Media Association of South Africa) Committee for 2017/2018. If you answered yes, to both the questions above, then AMASA would like you to join its Committee!

Members of the communications, media or advertising industry who wish to stand as committee members may nominate themselves or anyone who is willing to stand.

AMASA’s core focus is on ensuring that we improve the education levels of those with an interest in the media, marketing and advertising industry, with a view to improving knowledge and skills in media decision making techniques and their use.

The chairperson of AMASA Committee 2016/17, Wayne Bischoff, extends an invitation to all eligible media and advertising players to join the AGM taking place Wednesday 3rd May 2017 at the Ster Kinekor Preview Theatre in Krammerville.


“If you aspire to elevate our industry to new heights, then you would serve well being a part of the AMASA Committee, we are look forward to the nominations for the 2017/18 AMASA Joburg Committee and expect that we will get energetic committee members who will bring with them passion and educated opinions over the next 12 months,” says Bischoff.

It is important to our industry that the AMASA Joburg committee is a well-balanced and representative committee, of media owners and agency representatives, as well as marketers. So, the nominations are open to all sectors of the advertising media and include all marketing and media professionals.


“Even though the Committee members serve as volunteers, it is rewarding, both professionally and personally, to be a part of elevating our industry to new heights. And it’s also a lot of fun! I welcome all to apply now!”
