  5. What does it cost to attend an AMM meeting?
    All representatives of member companies, pharma, agencies and media buyers may attend at no cost. Non members must become an AMM member in order to attend.

  6. What happens at AMM meetings?
    First there's an informal socializing and networking opportunity with refreshments. When the President calls the meeting to order there's usually a brief introduction and then either a panel discussion or at least two individual speakers. The topics are always timely, educational, and of vital interest to all of us who work in the medical journal publishing industry.

  7. Is it important for everyone at a member company to attend AMM's meetings?
    It is certainly desirable for everyone to attend. That way all colleagues gain the same knowledge and have the same perspective for carrying out the objectives of their publications. AMM meetings are also great opportunities for face-to-face networking.

  8. If I have to miss a meeting, can I still get the slide presentations?
    Yes. The slides are usually available for members only.

  9. As a member, how do I register to attend an AMM meeting?
    We always send out meeting invitations well in advance of our meetings. They include links to our registration forms. If you're a member you should be on our mailing list. Note: It's important to register in advance so we know how many people to prepare for, even though members attend at no charge. However, if you find at the last minute that you can attend, we will welcome you.
     
  10. What if I'm not an AMM member but would like to attend a meeting?
    AMM events are restricted to member companies, pharma, agencies and media buyers. We encourage you to become a member of AMM.
