We Want You!

The Education & Training Committee is seeking additional volunteers to help plan AMCA's educational offerings such as webinars, technical seminars, outreach programs to industry professionals and students, online learning opportunities, and so much more.

Committee meetings currently take place every six weeks for one hour, and no previous AMCA committee experience or involvement is required. This is a fantastic way to get involved and impact the industry and association we are all a part of!

Please contact Lisa Cherney, AMCA Education Manager and staff liaison for the E&T Committee if you are interested in joining.
