Testimonials

  • Like many POMA members, I wear a variety of hats. Part TV production, part public relations, part freelance writer, my job varies and I go where the day takes me. The associations I build, the contacts I make and the information I learn at POMA's Summer Business Conference helps me every step of the way.... Read More

  • 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.
    The Media Group – Joe Wieczorek Owner
  • As a full-time freelance magazine writer and book author I spend a lot of time alone - in the office, traveling and in remote locations. POMA through its Briefs, Business Conference and webinars offers me a very valuable means of staying in communications/networking with others in my field.... Read More

  • POMA is a money maker! A casual conversation at the POMA business conference turned into a friendship, and almost immediately, into a lucrative business deal for Gun Talk Media. In business, it's often about the contacts, and POMA provides quality contacts.
    Tom Gresham Gun Talk Media
  • 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.... Read More

  • 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....

  • POMA provides incredible opportunities, far exceeding any expectations I had for being a POMA member. POMA Money Line listings provide room to spawn new thinking, expand opportunities, explore life in a new facility or role, just great!  Keep up the great work!
    David Barus Freelance Writer
  • 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.... Read More
