The Marketing Professionals Association (“”) recently held its 2017 Annual General Meeting, where it toasted a successful year for marketing in the Cayman Islands and voted in a new Board. The 2018 Board is as follows:

Outgoing Board members include (Chairman), Karen Ebanks (Vice Chair), Maya Lewis (Secretary) and Eileen Keens (Head of Membership).

“2017 was an exceptional year for CIMPA,” said Laura Skec, 2017 CIMPA Chair. “The Board set an aggressive training and events schedule, designed to help increase and improve the association’s awareness and overall contribution to the marketing profession in Cayman. The Board took the challenge with relish and delivered a fantastic programme of activities to its members, and I am excited to watch the association continue to grow over the next year under the helm of the new team.”

Most recently CIMPA held its annual marketing awards, which were adjudicated by three independent, international judges and focused on the heroes of the local marketing sector. With over 40 applicants across eight categories, the glamorous awards ceremony and dinner held in November solidified the awards as a key event for the local marketing community. The 2018 CIMPA marketing awards are slated to take place in Spring 2018, with the application process launching early next year.

Last summer, the association also hosted its popular annual conference focused on ‘Storytelling,’ as consumers increasingly look to make connections with brands and businesses through marketing. The fourth annual conference, this flagship event has grown from strength-to-strength and this year saw a line-up of fantastic international and local speakers and over 150 delegates, showcasing the need for fresh, international perspectives and insight from local industry leaders to help empower and motivate local marketers. Next year, the conference is set to take place in Fall 2018 and CIMPA members will benefit from early-bird booking and a reduced registration fee.

As the new elects settle in, the 2018 Board is asking for energized and invigorated members to apply for the following volunteer positions:
