How to Become a Member


UMO's activities are open to all Carnegie Mellon students though we ask students to actively participate in UMO to receive official membership status.

To be an official member you must:

  • Meet the requirements in the Points System
  • Be a member of the American Marketing Association (AMA) Visit for more details

Membership Points System: 
Attending and participating in various UMO events grants you access to higher membership levels (see more detailed description below): 

  • Attend an event/general body meeting/speaker - 10pts
  • Engage in a "Lightning Talk" - 25pts
  • Participation during an event (i.e. asking/answering questions) - 5pts
  • Engaging in social media (Facebook "Likes" and tags, Twitter tweets @cmuUMO and mentions) - 5pts  

Membership Levels: 

  • Active Member:
    25 points + AMA Membership*
    (get added to UMO LinkedIn group, OrgTracker, and UMO website, and get invited to AMA Pittsburgh Networking Events)

Participate: Indicating that you participated by answering/asking questions during an event is an easy way to get 5 points!
Give a Lightening Talk: Have something interesting you want to share with the club? Worked on a marketing project you want to talk about? Want to give a quick marketing related demo (such as a cool tip in InDesign?)? E-mail and pick an upcoming event where you can present a 5-minute lecture/discussion to get 25 points!
