The AMI/USA Board of Directors is leading the search for an executive director for AMI/USA, a membership organization for Montessori schools and educators in the United States, dedicated to preserving and expanding authentic, fully implemented Montessori education.

AMI/USA seeks an executive director to lead the organization’s national operation and growth, and in concert with the Board of Directors, define its direction and future.
