Volunteer of the Year




Volunteers are the driving force behind AAM and contribute far more than just their time. Their ideas, insight, expertise and passion for their jobs and the professional services industry put life into AAM. Each year AAM's board of directors looks at the number of volunteers that serve the organization, and has the difficult task of selecting one individual who has risen to the top for recognition as AAM's Volunteer of the Year.


Qualities that the board takes into consideration include:

  • Dedication to AAM
  • Committee involvement
  • Having gone above and beyond
