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.

Upcoming Events

AMS Annual Meeting
Tuesday, July 14, 2020, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM (Eastern)

Oh what a year it has been! From the pandemic declared in March, and our cancelled Montessori Event; to our first ever virtual conference in June, and the installation of our new executive director and board president that same month, AMS has seen significant ups and downs since we gathered in 2019 for our last annual meeting.

AMS members: please join us at our 2020 event to reflect on the glories, the surprises, and the challenges we’ve faced both in Fiscal Year 2019 (July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020), and in months more recent. Also, learn about how we are rebuilding as a strong, “future-proofed” organization that will be forever responsive to the changing needs of our Montessori community.

AMS Board president, Amira D. Mogaji, will host the meeting, along with AMS executive director, Munir Shivji. Susan Kambrich, board treasurer, will provide a financial report.

Link to join meeting coming soon.
