One of the most valuable benefits that AMA Long Beach provides are firm tours to renowned agencies, corporations, and firms within Southern California.
Members are able to learn about the way businesses operate and get an inside look on their company culture. At the end of each tour, there are opportunities for "Employee Q&A", where members can ask current employees about their firsthand experiences. Members are free to inquire about any advice and recommendations that these employees may have for personal and professional growth.
Firm tours are also a great opportunity for members to connect with professionals from different industries.
We believe the best way to learn is through the people who are already in the industry. So we encourage members to practice networking and ask questions to get the most of their visit.
We are proud to have connections within some of the biggest companies and agencies in Southern California. We have exciting tours coming up this upcoming school year! Check out our calendar for more information.

Networking with your peers is something that we consider to be extremely valuable. For that reason, our chapter makes an effort to build experiences our members will never forget.
Every semester, we host multiple social events where our members are able to network and create long lasting friendships. At our events, we welcome individuals from all organizations to ensure that our members have the opportunity to truly expand their network.
During the 2019 - 2020 academic year, we have many exciting social events planned, such as Broomball, Art Gala, and so much more. Check out our calendar for upcoming events. We hope to see you there!
