2023 State Conferences

Due to the ongoing unpredictability of the COVID-19 pandemic, details about state society conferences are ever-changing. The AAMA will share available information on the “State Society Conferences” webpage (under the Continuing Education tab of the AAMA website) and via the AAMA Facebook page’s events section.

AAMA members and other interested medical assistants—if your state is not listed, contact your state president for details. You can find your state president on the “State and Chapter Listings” webpage. (Updates will be posted to the AAMA website and Facebook page as received.)

State society leaders—two ways to reach potential attendees are available:

  1. Make sure your state conference information is posted on the AAMA website. You can email the AAMA at MarCom@aama-ntl.org with questions and updated information, including links to registration information for your state meeting.
  2. If you would like AAMA staff to share the event via the AAMA’s Facebook page to broadcast the information to its 51,000+ followers, submit a Save-the-Date online form, accessible via the My Account section of the AAMA website (must be signed in for access).
