KCDMA: 816.561.5323 if you have any questions.
KCDMA was founded in 1948 when direct marketing was gaining momentum but modern direct marketing had not been established. A small, dedicated group of professionals in direct mail united to protest an impending postal hike, led by direct marketing trailblazer Martin Baier (KCDMA's first president).
Led by a 18-member Board of Directors, KCDMA is dedicated to bringing quality, cutting-edge educational opportunities to marketing professionals.
Throughout the year, KCDMA provides:
Monthly Meetings - Held typically the second Tuesday of the month, these sessions cover a range of hot topics in direct marketing and also provide a great opportunity to meet and mingle with other practitioners.
Advancing Direct - Held annually, this high-powered conference features national experts so you can learn what's working, what's hot and what's not.
AMBIT Awards - KCDMA honors top direct marketing campaigns through this well-respected awards program. Entries are accepted in early January, and honors awarded in March.
KCDMA Funraiser Golf Tournament - KCDMA tees off for a day of fun and camaraderie at this annual event, held in the summer or early fall.
KCDMA also provides a job board (members can post at no charge), a comprehensive online directory, a monthly e-newsletter Inside Direct and an opportunity to participate in the KCDMA Community Service Project.
