AMPLA Needs You

From the Chair and Executive Director

AMPLA needs your support. Despite numerous efforts to arrest the decline over the past few years, AMPLA has posted significant back to back losses (2018-2019: -$105,416; 2019-2020: -$241,954) with a similar loss forecast for the 2020-2021 financial year. These losses are largely due to declining membership revenue and declining conference attendance. COVID has certainly impacted our ability to host face to face events and resulted in the cancellation of the flagship annual conference. However the underlying struggle AMPLA faces is not solely linked to COVID – in other words, unless major changes are made and revenue increased, AMPLA faces an existential crisis never before experienced in its 40+ years of existence.
