This year, SAME Philadelphia sent Jaimie Wright to the JETC conference this past May. This was Jaimie’s first JETC Conference.
"Thanks to SAME Philly, I was able to attend the 2018 JETC conference. My greatest takeaway was the opportunity to talk with individuals who are leading similar career paths as my own. I am new to the industry, and working world in general, and talking with a variety of fellow marketers gave me some awesome ideas to bring back and apply within my own company. I appreciated the young member events because I met people who helped me navigate my day to day at the conference and network with experienced individuals in the industry. Being part of SAME has been a wonderful experience thus far. I have learned something new at every SAME event that I have attended. I have met so many great people through being part of the SAME Philly board, and through attending SAME events." -Jaimie
