Administrative history

The Administrative Management Society or AMS was founded in 1919 and originally called the National Association of Office Managers or NAOM. The name was changed in May 1929 to National Office Management Association or NOMA, with chapters in the USA, Canada and the West Indies. The aim is to provide education and networking opportunities for office managers. The Edmonton Chapter of NOMA petitioned for a charter February 28, 1949 and it was granted the next month. February 1, 1964 the name of NOMA was officially changed to Administrative Management Society.
