By becoming an affiliate of AMPS, the CASM club will be able to take advantage of more exposure and advertising within the AMPS network, as well as drawing in modelers that might not otherwise visit a strictly IPMS show. There are no changes required with the way that we already conduct our club to be an AMPS affiliate. The only requirement is to have at least one AMPS national member (which we do).
An AMPS representative officer, John Charvat, came to the recent Sproo-Doo contest and finalized the process. As of now, Central Arkansas Scale Modelers is not only an IPMS chapter, but also an AMPS affiliate chapter. CASM is a thriving club and I believe that becoming a dual charter will only strengthen us.
