Nationals is a convention held every spring to honor and recognize the work that all the AMA chapters across the nation and parts of the world have done. Each chapter submits a chapter plan and annual report to show their accomplishments, and then are judged on those accomplishments. A Case Competition also takes place. The Case Competition is handed out to all the chapters in the beginning of each school year for students to apply real market research skills. A marketing plan is written and submitted for judging. Each chapter is judged and awards are handed out.
