Start spreading the News! New York, New York! The AMI Annual Convention is headed to the Big Apple and we have an amazing spring ahead of us leading up to the convention! Across the nation, special moms are being honored, and AMI offers several ways to recognize them! The AMI Commemorative Jewelry is a wonderful keepsake that will continue to honor your state's Mother of the Year, Young Mother and Mothers of Achievement long after the Convention has passed.

Additionally, you can honor your state association and moms with ads in the yearbook, official American Mothers certificates, website listings, Honors & Memorials donations and more!  Visit us online to place your order or contact the office at for an order form.

Be sure to place your yearbook ads, jewelry and certificate orders no later than March 20th.

We look forward to seeing you in NYC!
