This role sits at the helm of our global AMSA Community — a kind of Master of Ceremonies for engagement and growth. The VPM role summons a big-picture leader, a person who thrives on collaboration, strategic thinking and finding innovative ways to coalesce our mighty force of global voices to enact change. For good. At a high level, this role offers:
Note: this is a two-year role. The first year is served as VPM-elect, working alongside the VPM (in a kind of apprenticeship), helping support AMSA’s membership team while learning all there is to know about this role. This way, there’s double-power at the top, and the VPM-elect is able to hit the ground running the following year when she/he takes the reins.
