Next Ideas

One of the most popular resources that GAMA International has offered for the past 10 years is our Great Ideas book series. The series has been a favorite resource for industry leaders because it provides our members with wisdom from successful field leaders of specific topics that are vital to our firms and agencies.

To continue this great tradition of providing GAMA members with the tools for success, we are happy to announce or Next Ideas series. This series of books will build upon the tradition of the Great Ideas series. It will focus on the future, therefore, moving our industry leaders from best practices to next practices. In the books, industry leaders will share ideas, successes, challenges, and more about what they have learned along the way.
