“AMCIS has been helping schools to advance their professional expertise in admissions, marketing and communications for over 25 years. Everything we do is about supporting and inspiring all those who work in those areas and making sure they have the right tools and high quality training to do their job so it makes complete sense for us to embrace The Friday Club and their popular weekly interviews. Together, we can bring support and professional expertise to even more schools.”

“The Friday Club was created as a way of connecting and celebrating school marketing and admissions professionals around the world online. We are so proud to be partnering with AMCIS, an association that does so much great work to support, educate and professionally develop school marketing and admissions teams at their member schools.
