Before you start:

Membership is free. To qualify as a member of the American Mandarin Society you must be an American citizen or permanent resident and have studied Chinese for at least one semester and lived in Greater China during or after such studies. Other interested individuals are welcome to join as associates.

Both members and associates of AMS will get access to our newsletter, jobs board, and event announcements. Members, however, will also get invitations to certain members-only events and be eligible for our annual Fellows Program.
