Testimonials

  • 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.... Read More

  • 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.
    Darren Warner Freelance Writer
  • 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
  • I have 7 articles publishing this week due to my association with POMA. Not to mention the numerous business opportunities from people that I have met. Just last week a company that I wanted to do some business with automatically jumped on board when he heard that I was a POMA member. I can't even begin to tell you how much business I did just this week due to my POMA connections.

  • After admiring Rockhouse Motion's work for a while, Ian connected with Aaron, and after exchanging emails and chatting on the phone, they realized they have the same work ethic: Work hard and long, cut out all the BS, and produce a premium product.... Read More

  • 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.
    J.R. Robbins NRAHuntersRights.org
  • I’ve learned over the years that the quickest way to get from where you are to where you want to be is to find someone who is already where you want to be and do whatever he or she tells you to do. POMA is the best place to find a mentor to help you become an outdoor communicator, a PR professional, a videographer, a photographer or any other area for communicating the out-of-doors....

  • 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
  • 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.... Read More

  • 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
