How do I create my profile?

Yes, your AMSE profile can be updated online as your personal information evolves. If you have any questions about the process, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can help you out.
AMSE members are grouped by industry. Please select the industry or industries that most represent the work you do. This will help other members find you to connect.
How do I connect with other members?
Our messaging system is tied to your email account. This allows you to message members directly and receive their replies or outreach via email. If you are not comfortable with sharing your email, please make sure to use an email that you feel comfortable being available within our closed network.
Are there rules about replying?
As a common courtesy to our members, we ask that you reply to inbound messages within 14 business days (although we understand that things happen).
What about solicitation?
We all have a great business and want to share them, but actively trying to sell a product, spamming members, and using the AMSE platform as a way to solely sell your products is not allowed. If you feel that messages are bordering on solicitation, please notify the AMSE admin team. Members that solicit or market their services in excessive fashion will be notified, and those who do not follow the member rules will be asked to leave the group.
How do I search for other members?
You can search our membership by industry, location, and name. We hope spouses traveling to different cities can use AMSE as a resource to help them build new relationships and get a warm welcome when they are stationed.
So what’s standing in the way of you joining AMSE?
AMSE will not only give you access to tools, support and resources needed to guide your journey of entrepreneurship, BUT also give you the one-on-one connections you need. The AMSE community will surround you and support you every single step of the way.
