Member Relations Committee

The most important part of AMPs is the members that make up our community. The new member relations committee will focus on integrating new members into the established AMPs family, as well as finding ways to re-engage our veteran members. This committee will help to remind you why you joined AMPs and what makes us so unique.

New within the Members Relations Committee is the Social Engagement focus.  AMPs focus on social engagement will help bring new and exciting member benefits to the community. Not only planning our community service events, but also helping to implement exciting social activities outside of our regularly scheduled monthly meetings including happy hours, brown bags, and much more. Stay tuned for exciting new ways to engage within our community, and consider joining the committee to help make an impact!

Marketing Committee

As we watch technology evolve quickly around us, we find it important for AMPs to help deliver up-to-date information to the community through social media. The focus of this new committee is to find ways AMPs can bring the news to you in fun bite-size fashion when you want and need it most.

Special Events Committee

The purpose of the Special Events Committee is to create and execute three top-notch industry events throughout the AMPs calendar year. In the past, these have included the Golf Tournament, Holiday Party and Summer Bash; however, we are open to new ideas and encourage creativity among our committees. This new committee structure, which brings golf into the fold, centralizes all our special events, allowing for better communication between our committee members and Management Company and giving our committee members exposure to planning various large-scale events.
