Congratulations! Welcome to the AMSA leadership family. Being a chapter officer is one of the hardest jobs in AMSA, but it is also one of the most rewarding and most FUN! As a chapter officer, you are put in an amazing position to influence people at your school and in your community. Hopefully you recognize the tremendous potential that lies in you. Right now you might be asking yourself, how am I going to juggle this and my school? What do I do first? How do I get started? How do I work with National AMSA? Where is National AMSA? Catecholamines are released. Your forehead beads with sweat. WHAT DO I DO?! You Take it to the Next Level!

We realize that the job of a Chapter Officer can initially be a daunting one, but there are plenty of people to help you along the way. These online resources are intended to aid you in your new job by giving you contacts and a variety of information that will make your job a lot easier. With a little help from AMSA and some hard work on your part, your chapter will have a fun and successful year. Please do not hesitate to contact your trustees, committees or national leaders to ask questions, brainstorm and be guided in finding AMSA resources.
