AMA Event Sanctioning and COVID-19

Safety is important to our members and the public. AMA is continuing to monitor COVID-19 guidelines and recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Because of the administrative and insurance costs associated with issuing a sanction for an event, AMA policy does not offer refunds or credits for canceled or rescheduled events. However, given the evolving situation with COVID-19, AMA will be temporarily amending this policy for events scheduled through April 30, 2020. If a CD or EM cancels an event, AMA will allow sanctions, events ads purchased through the sanctioning portal, and insurance certificates to be rescheduled at no additional charge. Events must be rescheduled during the 2020 calendar year. We will make every effort to promptly reschedule the event to include updating the online event listing at Because of deadlines with Model Aviation magazine, we cannot guarantee rescheduled events will be reflected immediately in the magazine. To reschedule your event taking place between now and April 30, 2020, at no charge, please email or call 765.287.1256 x 252 and provide the name of the CD or EM, event details, and new date change.

We’ll continue to keep you updated on our policy and protocol as the situation evolves. Please continue to follow the recommendations of the CDC and take extra precautions on how to safely conduct events at

Thank you.
