“Brandon Hollands is such a motivated and enthusiastic member as part of the AMA DFW communications team. He comes to the table with new ideas and creative approaches that help keep our social media channels fresh and engaging. He’s done a wonderful job combining his social media support role with his Mentor Program involvement to build a campaign that powerfully communicates the benefits of this very important Chapter initiative. By spearheading content like #MentorMonday and #TestimonialTuesday, he’s really put a “face” to the program and its value to our members. Thank you for all you do, Brandon!”
