Matthew Fox will become AAMS Director of Event Design starting on October 26 bringing more than 10 years of direct meetings industry experience of all event sizes. Previously, he worked at Meeting Management Services as Senior Project Manager, since 2011. He brings his expertise in registration, logistics, and expo/sponsorship to AMTC20, as well as future conferences and events. Pre COVID-19, Fox was the meetings and logistics lead for many corporate and association meetings, inclusive of domestic and international large-scale events in in Brussels, Singapore, and Australia.
Christina Childs joined the organization on September 1 as AAMS Director of Education & Special Events as well as MedEvac Foundation International Director of Events. Childs ran this year’s MTLI Virtual Grad School and is the lead on the virtual AMTC drawing on her strategic planning and tradeshow expertise. She previously handled event planning in Engineering, Telecommunications and Renewable Energy Industry Associations.
“Customer service is very important to AAMS as well as assuring our members and non-members have an excellent experience through informative and quality education, resources, and advocacy,” said Cameron Curtis, AAMS President and CEO. “With 100% board support, after a virtual strategic planning two-day meeting, our organization is well placed for success with a roadmap and a small but mighty leadership team to support the industry and deliver an excellent member engagement experience,” she added.
Under Curtis’ guidance, Christopher Eastlee, long-time AAMS Vice President of Public Affairs, and Garet Turner, in his new position as Vice President of Strategic Engagement & Member Experience for AAMS and Executive Director of the MedEvac Foundation International, will collectively focus on customer service, creating more value for members, partners and donors, as well as improving the organization’s education, events, and internal processes.
“Working hand-in-hand with the board, Cameron, and our new leadership team, we have accomplished a lot in a short period of time,” Garet Turner said. “We look forward to producing a virtual AMTC that will be full of relevant content including dynamic keynote speakers, 60+ education sessions, 2020 AAMS awards, as well as networking opportunities.”
