American Management Association (AMA), a world leader in talent development and performance-based learning solutions, has relocated its Executive Conference Center in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area to the heart of Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia. The 18,000 square-foot facility is located at 2345 Crystal Drive and is situated within one mile of Reagan National Airport and three blocks from the Crystal City METRO, Washington’s commuter transport system.

The state-of-the-art facility includes 10 meeting rooms and three break-out rooms that can accommodate meetings for five to 90 people. The facility also includes a business center, bookstore, beverage stations and lounges, and is available for businesses and organizations for off-site events.

Each of the meeting rooms is equipped with the latest interactive technology, including projection equipment, audio system, and wireless Internet connectivity. AMA’s commitment to technology is also reflected in its target=_blank>blended-learning approach to training. Many of its seminars include pre- and post-seminar online assessments, virtual sessions, online communities and Web-based development tools. These programs support AMA’s instructor-led, seminar experience and extend and reinforce learning beyond the classroom.

“American Management Association has operated an Executive Conference Center in Washington, D.C., for more than 40 years. Our association has been a trusted training partner to many large corporations, small businesses, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations,” said Edward T. Reilly, AMA’s president and CEO. “Last year, AMA’s former Washington, D.C., Center held more than 400 public seminar sessions for nearly 6,000 participants, the majority of whom travel from outside the area, helping to stimulate the local economy. We look forward to continued success in our new facility in Arlington.”

AMA has Executive Conference Centers in Atlanta, Chicago, New York, and San Francisco, and also operates training facilities in Brussels, Toronto, Mexico City, Tokyo, Shanghai, Beijing, and Istanbul and in many other cities around the world.

AMA offers more than 170 seminars in general management, interpersonal skills, project management, communication skills, human resources, sales, marketing, leadership and finance. Programs are offered at all levels, from CEOs and senior executives to new managers and administrative professionals. Business professionals with real-world experience facilitate AMA programs and use practical, action-oriented content that can be immediately applied in the workplace. Last year, AMA offered over 3,000 seminar sessions worldwide for more than 60,000 people.
