Plan a Region Meeting
Thank you for your interest in planning an AMA-MSS region meeting. Region meetings represent an excellent opportunity to promote regional cohesiveness and to increase the visibility of the AMA-MSS at the region, state, and local levels. Region meetings are also a great way to introduce first-timers to the AMA.
The AMA-MSS Region Meeting Planner gives you all of the information you need to plan and implement a successful region meeting. The Planner covers a wide range of topics, including where to hold your meeting, how to find speakers, how to publicize your meeting, and much more.
Each AMA-MSS region is eligible to receive a grant of up to $1,000 to help fund its yearly region meeting. Funding is contingent on submission of a completed Region Meeting Proposal Form to the AMA Department of Medical Student Services at least 60 days before the meeting.
The AMA-MSS is here to help you plan your meeting. Please contact Katherine Torres-Hertz with any questions about aspects of meeting planning or about the Region Meeting Proposal Form.
You may also want to consider contacting other AMA-MSS region leaders, or members of the AMA-MSS Governing Council, many of whom have in the past served in region leadership roles and helped plan region meetings.
