Mission Statement

The Association for Municipal Employment Services (AMES) is a non-profit organization which promotes training and networking opportunities for staff that provide employment services.


AMES is a dynamic group which recognizes that job seekers often face barriers to employment as a result of personal circumstances, societal and technological factors.


Creating an environment of continuous learning can assist staff in helping job seekers address and overcome the barriers that they face. AMES facilitates this goal by offering creative and informative training/networking opportunities that provide staff with valuable tools and approaches for administering employment services, while ensuring that the learning opportunities provided are engaging, uplifting and intrinsic to the work that we do.
