  • 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....

  • 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

  • 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 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.
