Testimonials

  • 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.

  • 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....

  • 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

  • Well, that didn’t take long. I just sent in my dues payment and I’ve already seen a 400 percent return on the investment thanks to a tip from the Money Line. Thank you 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....

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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!
