Join the AMS Beacons

The AMS Beacons Program is rooted in former Executive Director Kenneth Spengler’s legacy of fostering the AMS as an open, inclusive, and welcoming organization. At Annual Meetings, Beacons are available to assist anyone in attendance—from the first-timer who needs directions to a seasoned attendee who needs some timely and thoughtful advice. Beacons, who may be identified by their bright yellow lanyards, are a volunteer, complementary resource to the AMS staff and are trained on what questions and information should be referred to AMS staff members.
