The HVDMA is an information and networking club for Direct Marketing professionals from Connecticut, New York and New Jersey.  Its goal is to support the Direct Marketing industry by creating opportunities for professionals to network, to learn, and to contribute to the DM community through fundraising and by sharing resources and expertise. A non-profit organization, the HVDMA provides a showcase for the Hudson Valley DM industry’s best practices, and provides quality education through its programming and its affiliation with the Pace University Direct Marketing Program. This affiliation enables the HVDMA to support newcomers to the industry through a formal scholarship program and exposure to industry leaders.


In 2002, the HVDMA established an annual Award and Scholarship program. This marked the beginning of a proud tradition that gives visibility to industry leaders, and encouragement to those who are entering the field.
