Over the past year, AM&AA, and its executives worked closely with stakeholders to establish a strategic plan to support the successful future growth of AM&AA and its membership. As such, six new subcommittees were launched this year to expand the reach and influence of the association.
The Membership Benefits Committee is responsible for continually ensuring that our current member benefits align with our member needs. They will also identify and propose new member benefits to ensure member retention, as well as membership growth.
Education & Certification
The Education & Certification Committee is responsible for continual development, implementation, regulation, and evaluation of the Certified Merger & Acquisition Advisor (CM&AA) designation. The Committee plays a defining role in the continued growth of the program and ensures the educational content of the training course is practical, relevant, and up-to-date. AM&AA staff will handle the coordination of the actual training events.
The Conference Content Committee is responsible for collaborating with the Conference Chair and AM&AA staff in identifying timely and relevant content for our annual conferences, as well as recruiting dynamic speakers and panelists for sessions. Two conferences occur annually.
The Government Affairs Committee is committed to identifying policy activity at the state and federal levels that impact the business of M&A activity. They are also encouraged towards developing position papers on regulatory and compliance issues impacting the middle markets.
Media & Communications
The Marketing & Communications Committee will meet monthly with AM&AA staff to discuss content for the AM&AA Quarterly Newsletter, features (e.g. “on the move”, deal of the month, spotlight, editorial commentary.) AM&AA will provide editorial support (editing, proofing, AP style) creative design and distribution.
