AMS Local Chapters


The Local Chapters of the AMS are the backbone of the organization. The staff at AMS Headquarters and the Local Chapter Affairs Committee are here to help you thrive.

This page is provided as an assistance to all local chapters - to those just getting started as well as for those chapters who have weathered time.

Local Chapter Awards

  • Local Chapter of the Year Award Application (MS Word or pdf)
  • Poster Competition Rules - It was decided by the Local Chapter Affairs Committee that a chapter can only win 1st place in the poster competition two years in a row. After winning 1st place two years in a row, the chapter will only be considered for 2nd or 3rd place during the next poster competition. After that, the chapter will then be eligible again for 1st place. This is similar to the Chapter of the Year rules, where no chapter can win 1st place more than two years in a row, but can be considered for Honor Roll status. We encourage all chapters to have a poster at the Annual Meeting. It is a great way to show off your chapter and to tell people what your chapter is doing for your community, your members, and the AMS.
