Share, learn and grow with a group of senior leaders in continuous improvement.
The AME Champions Club is exclusively for the "Champions of Excellence" within a plant or facility. Membership in the Champions Club enables these agents of change to interact directly within a select group of individuals who share similar responsibilities to improve their company's competitiveness and who approach that challenge with an equally high level of enthusiasm and insight. Champions Club membership also enhances their company's commitment to the excellence process, while creating a broader alliance of companies with AME.
The principal benefit for a membership in the Champions Club is the unique opportunity to meet and network with your peers who have similar problems and responsibilities. Only members in the Champions Club and their guests are invited to the three to four meetings a year where specific topics are discussed and noted authorities are asked to present.
Members of AME Champions Club are senior executives from large and small companies and represent a large cross section of industries.
We seek and encourage membership from a diverse array of companies to provide each member with exposure that would be unattainable in other types of organizations and industry groups.
The objective of the Champions Club is to provide its members with state-of-the-art management techniques and skill development opportunities that will help them help their companies compete more effectively in a ever increasingly globally competitive marketplace.
