“I am impressed with the growing number of professional social marketers working on all six continents who are helping people to live better lives. The world has always had caregivers but social marketers represent a new corps of well-trained people who have the knowledge and skill to develop effective social marketing campaigns aiming at improving people's behaviors in their own interest and in the society's interest."

"I joined iSMA because it is seeking to build a community among social marketers to exchange ideas and learnings so that we will all be more effective in the work we do to ‘create a better world through marketing’.”

Philip Kotler, S.C.Johnson & Son Distinguished Professor of International Marketing Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois

"I decided to make the most of my iSMA membership, so I signed up for some committee work, too. I'm glad I did. As a student working on my masters' degree, it's been a treat getting a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes workings of a professional organization like iSMA. The focus on innovative social marketing ideas and practices has been very helpful to my thesis work. The committee process of discussing and sharing ideas has also been positive and energizing for me. I think this experience will help me pursue work in social marketing once my studies are complete.”

Tamara Harbar, Masters candidate, University of Waterloo Faculty of Environmental Studies, Waterloo Canada
