Major Changes Planned for Reunion 2021
New headquarter Hotel, New events, New venues

For the first time in the history of our organization a planned reunion event (R2020) had to be canceled this past April due to COVID19. Your AMA Reunion Committee took that opportunity to carefully review past Reunion events and venues and consider many suggestions being voiced by our alumni. Everyone felt it was time shake things up resulting in some significant changes to our reunions going forward. First we eliminated any official event on Thursday, however early registration and hospitality will be available for those arriving on Thursday. Although there are some important and required events that will remain, the Committee has been working to allow for more fellowship opportunities at the location where our memories were made….our AMA campus. Hospitality AMA Breakfast Soupy at Hoover Hall; Meetings in the Big Room and Texas Style BBQ are planned. For the first time the “Ladies of AMA” will hold at our campus a Fun Art event for all ladies that attend R2021. Furthermore the Committee has been for years considering a change in our hotel headquarters and for this Reunion we have selected the Blackburn Inn, in Staunton, VA as the R2021 alumni headquarter venue. In an effort to offset some of the cost of a better quality of food and drink we will be soliciting sponsorship opportunities for some of the events. Due to a very limited number of rooms and contractual obligations it is imperative that you make your hotel room reservations no later than March 14, 2021 and provide them with special pricing event code AMA21 in order to get a nightly rate of $99.00 plus tax.


R2021 Hotel Headquarters:

The Blackburn Inn & Conference Center
301 Greenville Ave
Staunton, VA 24401
540-712-0601
guestservices@blackburn-inn.com

SPECIAL RATE $99.00 PLUS TAX YOU MUST PROVIDE/USE SPECIAL PRICING CODE OF : “AMA21”
https://blackburn-inn.com

This is a boutique type of hotel with a limited number of rooms. We have been able to secure just a few rooms at this special rate and once they are gone, they are gone. March 14, 2021 is the deadline but we do not anticipate any rooms being available by then, so to play it safe, make your reservations before years end. Alumni fully booked all the available rooms for R2020 before it was canceled due to COVID19 so be aware.


Sponsorships

Your AMA Reunion Committee has been working diligently since late April 2020 securing a new venue for our reunion hotel headquarters and organizing a new format and events for Reunion 2021. We are trying to do some new things and significantly improve in the overall quality of the reunion experience. In order to make it affordable for as many alumni as possible we are opening certain events for sponsorship opportunities to help offset some of the costs.
