The Public Affairs and Marketing Network (PAMN) fosters the mission of cancer centers based in academic medical centers and research institutes. This team of like-minded and innovative professionals comes together to discuss the challenges of our respective organizations, connect with leaders in our industry and make meaningful contributions to the advancement of discovery.

Membership Eligibility

PAMN membership is reserved for marketing and communications professionals employed at academic cancer centers (must be designated by the National Cancer Institute and/or members of the Association for American Cancer Institutes). Staff of health care providers or hospitals that have an affiliation or other brand partnership with one of these cancer centers are not eligible for PAMN membership.

Members in PAMN include professionals who work in public relations, media relations, marketing, graphic design and publications, web design and content management, business development, MarCom strategy and leadership, physician relations and other related communications functions.

Membership Dues

Effective July 1, 2024, PAMN membership dues will be a flat rate of $695 per institution on an annual basis. With this cancer center-based membership model, institutions may sign up an unlimited number of relevant marketing and communications professionals under their cancer center account. All individual members are then eligible for the discounted member rate for our annual conference and other year-round membership benefits.
