The conference began with a resume review workshop, followed by nine workshops which covered topics such as entrepreneurship, sports marketing, and production coordination. The keynote speaker this year was Lindsey Pollack, an independent consultant associated with Negotiating Women. Author of "Getting from College to Career: 90 Things to Do Before You Join the Real World," Lindsey is a frequent speaker for college campuses around the country.

Overall this year the conference was a great success with the American Marketing Association being congratulated by not only the business school of SUNY New Paltz, but also the business community.
