  • 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!!!!!!

  • 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.

  • 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....
