Let's Dive in!

Students are ready to meet AMSA. Here's why.

It’s a challenging time for medical students returning to schools right now, no question. But also a time of renewed energy and drive — we are more motivated than ever to learn, make change and help save lives.

AMSA is uniquely positioned to help — particularly right now. This is why AMSA’s presence at fall fairs is so important. By making students aware of AMSA on your campus, you’re offering them a current they can plug their lights into — a power-source of inspiration, support and community.

How do you “fall-fair”? Here’s a few tips and resources to get you going.

  1. Contact your Dean of Student Affairs (or Associate Dean or Director). Their information is usually listed in a school directory or website. Ask them if there is a fall fair, or some kind of event where student organizations connect with students. Most schools have these.
  2. Ask them how AMSA can secure a ‘booth’ or space (virtual or IRL) at the event.
  3. Be your awesome AMSA-influencer self at the fair. We’ve got you all set, too, here’s a set of resources tailor-made for this. (And if you don’t see what you need, let us know. We’d like to help.)
  4. Grab email addresses. As prospects come through and converse with you, be sure to capture their email addresses for following up. Collect them yourself or you can easily create a free google form to do this electronically on-the-fly.
  5. Have them visit the join/renew page. Either in person during the fair or as a follow-up to # 4, send students to the join/renew page. Boom! Your chapter just got that much stronger, inspired and ready to make change.

Fall Fair Resources

Assets to use for virtual and on-campus fall fairs

  • Looping Video for IRL “tabling”. You can pull this up on an ipad or laptop to give passersby a sense of what AMSA is, what it stands for. (No audio, meant to loop in a noisy hall, convention room, etc.)
  • This is AMSA video — Inspiring 1-2 minute reel with a few testimonials. Could be shared to potential members as they stop into a virtual “room” or booth, or as part of your follow-up email (Step #4 above).
  • Brochure as PDF for sharing a bit about AMSA, what we stand for and what we offer.
  • Who’s part of our network? Oh, just some of the world’s most renowned physicians, game-changers and experts. This short video showcases some of the speakers from our last convention. 


  • Having an in-person tabling event this year? Email members@amsa.org to request some physical items that can be given away.
