POMA is working for its members. Let POMA work for you.

"It pays to be a POMA member," Darren Warner said in a recent note to POMA. "As a member, I'm able to receive more than three times as much for my work, from Buckmasters Rack magazine, than I would if I were not a POMA member."

Asst. Editor - Sporting Classics Magazine; Editor - Sporting Classics Daily

Had it not been for Money Line listings, I would not have found my current job at Sporting Classics magazine. I was traveling to Montana this summer with a friend, when we stopped in Kearney, NE for a night.

In a small pub, I checked the Money Line, saw the job opening and applied for it thinking it was a long shot, but worth a try. Next thing I know, I'm sitting here telling you this. Needless to say, POMA has benefited me greatly!

Two months after going full time as a writer I joined POMA and attended their convention in Ogden. POMA has helped me make a lot of good contacts, writing and Pro-staff deals. I don’t see how you can go wrong by joining. If you want to write part-time, it will make you a better writer. If you want to go full-time, you’ll make more contacts. You still have to hustle hard but POMA has been a big blessing for me.

POMA is amazing. The responsiveness to member needs is unheralded among professional organizations. POMA listens to our clients’ needs and reacts to them. POMA’s commitment to the industry shows at every conference. Our clients can’t afford to not be at the conference each year.

No one is doing what POMA is doing when it comes to education and opportunities. POMA reacts quickly to situations and is in tune with the needs of media and industry.

Tom Keer
Freelance Writer/The Keer Group

For years I avoided joining the professional writer’s organizations in favor of an independent approach to networking and relationship building.  That worked well for a while, but then I hit a plateau.  During that time I joined several writer's and media organizations. 

While every one has contributed to my professional career, POMA has really distinguished itself from the others.  The topics and outreach is always current and regular, Money Line is streamlined and timely, and the additional support topics are helpful and appropriate. 

POMA is a group that must be run by writers, for their proactive approach in delivering quick and relevant information helps me to fast-track my processes and accomplish more work.  Thanks for being a terrific business partner, POMA.

Just a few weeks after the conference, with one project, I was able to generate coverage for six POMA Corporate Partners. And, with the participation of those partners, I was able to write a much more rich and interesting review. Everyone wins, and that demonstrates to me how powerful and beneficial POMA membership is for journalists, manufacturers and organizations.

The benefits of attending the POMA conference come in many varieties. We met POMA media member Bill Konway at the event and made plans for a photo shoot. We think our partnership is going to rock the fashion runway. Check it out. Thanks POMA.

I am new to the industry, and I know there is a lot of water left to tread before I find my own sweet little island. However, because of POMA and the commitment and conviction of its founding members, I now have more confidence and better tools than I could have imagined receiving from any other source. For any new or struggling outdoor writer, photographer or outdoor content provider, “The best advice I can give is to join up with POMA. There is nothing else I can tell you that will help you more than that”.
