  • 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!!!!!!

  • POMA generates income for me on an almost weekly basis, in a strange way. Most members use Money Line as a job and freelance opportunity listing. I use it to generate editorial content ideas, especially for business/trade content buyers. Job listings offer tons of information about challenges faced by companies in our industry.... Read More

  • I am new to the industry, and I know there is a lot of water left to tread before I find my own sweet little island. However, because of POMA and the commitment and conviction of its founding members, I now have more confidence and better tools than I could have imagined receiving from any other source....

  • Had it not been for Money Line listings, I would not have found my current job at Sporting Classics magazine. I was traveling to Montana this summer with a friend, when we stopped in Kearney, NE for a night. In a small pub, I checked the Money Line, saw the job opening and applied for it thinking it was a long shot, but worth a try. Next thing I know, I'm sitting here telling you this.... Read More

  • 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....

  • Two months after going full time as a writer I joined POMA and attended their convention in Ogden. POMA has helped me make a lot of good contacts, writing and Pro-staff deals. I don’t see how you can go wrong by joining. If you want to write part-time, it will make you a better writer. If you want to go full-time, you’ll make more contacts.... Read More

  • 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.
