Coffee Talks

While our Monthly Signature Events have broad appeal, we recognize that certain industries and marketers have challenges unique to them. To address their specific needs, we currently offer two quarterly coffee talk series targeted to two sectors: nonprofits and tech companies.

Coffee Talks take place from 8-9 a.m. in the morning and are free for members of the AMA Charleston and just $10 for non-members. Coffee and pastries included!
