‘Look Closely at the Present You Are Constructing’; Here’s a 6-Question Quiz to AMPLIFY Your Knowledge

“Look closely at the present you are constructing: it should look like the future you are dreaming.” Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Alice Walker may not have been talking about our AM&P Network’s upcoming AMPLIFY 2022 Content & Marketing Summit on June 22-23 in Washington, D.C., but she could have been. We’ve all been given a clean slate to construct a new present for ourselves. Why not start here?

Here’s a 6-question quiz with information taken straight from the sessions that you will see and hear if you attend AMPLIFY 2022. Check out the full agenda of AMPLIFY here. We’ve put our heart and sole desires to adding value to your work life into this event.

“Words matter. You as writers, editors, content creators have a lot of power,” said Melanie Padgett Powers, owner of MelEdits. “The best copy editors I know are… paying attention to how people speak and how language is evolving.” Incorporating Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) into Your Magazine in a Purposeful Way with Padgett Powers and Lilia LaGesse (pictured) will be a must-see session.


1.b Mid-roll garnered 64% of the ad revenue share last year compared to 32% for pre-roll (up from 22%) and 4% for post-roll.

2.a 10% – “The other 90% fall into the second category. They have been using third-party data and cookies as a patchwork to target audiences, but now that those cookies are becoming obsolete the future has been looking pretty bleak.”

3.b 33% – Brands will have to work harder to create ads that mirror and enrich the distinct experience each social network offers.

4.c parents – Trust is huge, Green said. “Be willing to be vulnerable to establish trust in your organization.”

5.d all of the above. “Try hosting an info session, either virtually or in-person, to explain your program and answer any questions you might have… A succession plan is essentially a guide to what a volunteer should do if they can no longer fulfill their duties and need to pass them to someone else… Develop a good reputation for your volunteer program by emphasizing appreciation from the get-go. Make a plan to thank each person who attends an info session about your program or comes to a one-off volunteer opportunity.

6.d 54% – Incorporating DEI into your publications will only become more and more valuable as time moves on. Don’t miss this session! Also, the second-day keynote will be: We Are the Change Makers: How Association Pros Are Driving Multi-level DEI Progress.
