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. 

Committee Details:

  • Typically, each committee meets on a monthly basis either at the AMA office in Phoenix or at a specified Tucson meeting location. All committee meetings also have a Zoom option. 
  • Unless otherwise noted, committee meetings are open to all AMA members. 
  • We request each company limit participation to two employees per committee.
  • In order to keep our committees successful, committee members missing more than 20% of meetings (without giving prior notice to the committee’s AMA staff liaison) will be considered to have voluntarily stepped down and removed from the committee. 
  • You may not split/share your committee membership with someone in your organization, nor may you transfer your membership to someone else in between sign-up periods.
  • We recommend serving on no more than two committees at a time to ensure you can meet the time commitment required of each committee.
  • Each committee shall have no more than 50 members.
