ID Card
Q. Do I receive a membership ID card?
A. Yes. It will come with your AMC membership materials. Your AMC Membership Number is also on the AMC Outdoors address label. Here's where to look...

Chapters
Q. Can I participate in other chapter activities or change affiliation?
A. Yes, you can participate in any chapter activity, and you can change your affiliation to any of the 12 chapters at any time. The choices are: Maine; New Hampshire; Boston; Connecticut; Southeastern Massachusetts; Narragansett (RI); Worcester (Central MA); Berkshires (Western MA); Mohawk Hudson (Albany, NY area); New York-North Jersey; Delaware Valley; and Washington, DC.

Member Magazine
Q. Where's my AMC Outdoors?
A. If you are a new member, your first issue should arrive about four weeks after we process your payment. If you are a current member, there are several possibilities. If you have moved recently, your magazine may be lost in the mail (the Post Office is not required to forward your magazine). Or your membership may have expired (if you wait to renew until just before your membership expires, you may also miss an issue). Please call Member Services at 800-372-1758 or email AMCMembership@outdoors.org if you don't receive your magazine.

Mailing Lists
Q. Do you share my name with other groups?
A. Sometimes we share our mailing list with groups who may be of interest to members. If you do not want your name exchanged or rented, please call Member Services at 800-372-1758 or email AMCMembership@outdoors.org and let us know you want your name removed from the AMC's list. You can also write: Mail Preference Service, Direct Marketing Assoc., Box 643, Carmel, NY 10512, or call 212-768-7277 and ask that your name be removed from all mailing lists.

Renewals
Q. I got another renewal notice but I sent in my payment already. What's going on?
A. Usually when this happens it's because our renewal mailing and your payment crossed paths. If you wait to renew your membership until the very end of its term, you can call 800-372-1758 or email AMCMembership@outdoors.org and ask Member Services to check the status of your payment and membership.

Member ID
Q. I don't know my member ID number. How can I find this?
A. Your member number can always be found on the front cover of your AMC Outdoors magazine - It is a 5 or 6 digit number just above your name and address, followed by your membership expiration date. Here's where to look...
