Committees

More Opportunities To Get Involved And Network

Joining a committee is a rewarding experience and one of the best ways to get involved at the AMA and maximize your membership value!

The AMA relies heavily on Regular and Industry Partner member volunteer leaders to assist in planning events and coordinating AMA programs. Through volunteering on AMA committees, our members can develop professional and leadership skills, build meaningful relationships with peers, and work side-by-side with industry leaders all while being an integral part of the operations and overall success of the AMA. Members are invited to volunteer on the committees that best suit their talents and interests. 

Typically, each committee meets on a monthly basis either at the AMA office in Phoenix or at a specified Tucson meeting location. All committee meeting also have a Zoom option.  Unless otherwise noted, committee meetings are open to all AMA members.
