For the past eight years,
the Association for Management Information Systems Club has been a charter member of the Association for Information Systems-Student Chapters international organization, winning awards for seven of those years.
The IUP chapter (AMIS Club) has successfully created a space for university students to build a professional network and foster the skills of MIS. Every semester, the organization hosts professional speakers offering internships and jobs, community service
events, and fundraisers to help increase interview and resume skills, expand members’ professional networks, and provide an environment to continue peer-learning outside the classroom and to develop leadership skills.
During the 2017–18 academic year, AMIS
President Chad Mosesso was able to present these values to the parent organization, (AIS-SC), an international organization linking student chapters from universities across the globe. The AIS-SC presents awards to deserving student chapters every
year. Although most chapters are from larger universities with up to 400 members, IUP’s AMIS chapter has about 30 members. Under Mosesso’s presidency, AMIS was awarded the Outstanding Membership Activities Award and the Outstanding Communications
Award, the first in AMIS history winning two awards in one academic year.
The AMIS Club will attend the 10th annual AIS Leadership Conference this coming April in Temple, Pennsylvania, to participate in panel discussions, competitions, and leadership workshops. It is truly remarkable to see our small organization with little
resources compete against larger student chapters and succeed.
Mosesso’s efforts for success have motivated others to get involved in AMIS, AIS-SC competitions, and more. We are looking forward to hearing what AMIS accomplishes next!
