The Global Service Committee provides expertise and guidance to enhance global service resources and skills by assessing and recommending programs that assist AMT members in becoming best-of-breed service organizations.

The Committee:
  • Advocates for a mindset of excellence for customer service and satisfaction among AMT member companies with a focus on continuous improvement
  • Assists in developing standards for recruiting qualified candidates to the industry
  • Assists member companies in developing standards in service management, technical skills for installation, service and repair personnel, and "soft" skills customer service/support personnel  

Committee participation is both challenging and beneficial, broadening each committee member’s perspective and providing an in-depth understanding of the extent of AMT’s resources and how to access them. The combination of contributing, as well as learning, makes for a rewarding personal and professional experience.
