AMP is an outgrowth of a few accomplished meeting professionals who came together to discuss industry “best practices” for independent planners.

Over the years, we have grown slowly and steadily with the objective of focusing on educational content and cooperative effort versus organizational growth.

We have maintained a working environment of trust and integrity for more than 15 years. This is highly unusual among competing entities. This is AMP at its best, and what makes us uniquely qualified to be of service to you.

Our Core Values

A dedication to pursuing industry education

Operating ethically and professionally, as individuals and as a group

Cooperating to support the business activities of each member’s business

Serving first the best interest of our clients, individually and as a team

As Individuals

Each AMP member is a mindful business entrepreneur and an accomplished meeting professional.

Most members have 15 or more years experience in the industry and have earned the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) or Certificate of Meeting Management (CMM) designation, or hold advanced degrees in business and education.

Each individual is established in the marketplace as an independent business owner who understands accountability, budget management, ROI, and the discipline it takes to manage meeting services.

As a Team

This is where you, the client, benefit the most.

The members of AMP have a proven track record of working together as a team to produce small to large meetings.
