AMS Community Events

Connect with staff, board members, and other educators.

The COVID-19 pandemic has many of us sheltering in place—which means there’s never been a better time than now for us to come together virtually as a community. Please join us at these online events, each of which is an opportunity to learn and grow together. Human contact is of the essence.

For details about events specifically related to the pandemic, along with related resources, please visit our COVID-19 webpage.
