General Information

The Association of Meeting Professionals (AMPs) is a nonprofit association that represents and fosters the educational and professional needs of people working in meeting management industry.

Founded in Alexandria, Va., in 1982, AMPs has grown from being a handful of local meeting planners to a group of about 250 planner and service provider members from all over the United States.

At the core of the AMPs experience are the educational and networking programs created to provide members with the tools they need to be as successful as they can possibly be in the meeting planning industry.

Whether it’s a seminar on covering technological advances in the industry, contract negotiations, industry trends or a night of fun and networking at a trendy restaurant, AMPs programs are designed to help make members’ ‘life in the biz,’ professionally and personally enriched by simple, inexpensive and enjoyable participation. These dynamic programs are held on the second Tuesday of each month from September through June.

AMPs endeavors to keep a 50/50 planner-to-supplier ratio so all of our members can find great value and a great return in their membership participation. For Northern Va. and Washington, D.C. area meeting planners and the industry that serves them, an AMPs membership is a ‘must do.’
