Become an AMA Iowa Volunteer

Want to take your AMA membership – and your career – to the next level? Get involved as an AMA Iowa volunteer!

AMA Iowa could not be the organization it has become without our fantastic volunteers. From helping welcome attendees at AMA Iowa events, to serving on the planning committee for our annual awards ceremony, we have volunteer opportunities in all types, sizes, and time commitments to fit your schedule and interests.

Engaged volunteers get much more value from their AMA Iowa membership – more connections, more opportunities to learn, and more chances to grow. In fact, volunteering is such a valuable experience, we reserve the privilege of volunteering for members only!

Take your membership to the next level! To learn more about engaged with AMA Iowa, contact Jessie Kester, Director of Volunteers.
