AMS policy is that diversity of the boards, councils and committees it oversees should reflect the diversity of their industries in terms of the experience of members, methods of production and distribution, marketing strategies, and other distinguishing factors, including but not limited to individuals from historically underserved communities, that will bring different perspectives and ideas to the table. Throughout the full nomination process, AMS, in conjunction with industry, conducts extensive outreach, paying particular attention to reaching underserved communities, and considers the diversity of the population served and the knowledge, skills, and abilities of the members to serve a diverse population.
