AMP Committees

AMP Committees program events for all students at W&M to enjoy.  Each committee is managed by a Committee Chair.  Explore the six committees below.

AMP Committees
Films Committee

The Films Committee provides the student body with entertainment and education through films ranging from box office hits to art house cinema.  Aside from showing films, the committee has also programmed film festivals, filmmaking workshops, competitions, and entertainment industry speakers. Notable events include Murder Mystery Night and co-sponsoring the Global Films Festival.

Homebrew Committee

The Homebrew Committee promotes student talent by providing an opportunity for students to showcase their talents.  The committee conducts auditions for students who wish to take part in a Homebrew event at the beginning of each semester. Traditionally, Homebrews have followed various themes, such as "DanceBrew," "DejaBrew," and "ComedyBrew."  More recently, the Homebrew Committee has used student talent to lead various workshops, such as Salsa dancing, canvas painting, and cake decorating.

Impact Committee

The Impact Committee plans and executes events centered around diversity & inclusion, health & wellness, and current social topics/issues and engages with the diversity of the human experience through speakers, debates, discussions, and other programming.  The Impact Committee will also strive to encourage proper health and wellness practices among college students, and inform them of important social topics and civil engagement opportunities.  The flexibility of this committee allows for a wide variety of entertainment, ranging from professor talks to etiquette dinners to cultural dancers. The Impact Committee plans the annual Atwater Lecture. Past speakers include Tyler James Williams, Laurie Hernandez, Dominique Jackson, Laverne Cox, Bill Nye, and Spike Lee. 

Interns Committee

At the beginning of the fall semester, the Interns Chair recruits new W&M students to AMP, starting at the Activities Fair.  The Chair arranges an interview process and selects 15-20 students to serve on the Interns Committee.  The Interns Committee usually plans fewer events in the fall; however, they have perhaps the most flexibility, as they are encouraged to plan events from every facet of AMP's programming offerings.  They also work alongside committees they express interest in planning and executing events.  The Interns Chair works with the advisors to provide opportunities for the committee members to build a holistic understanding of AMP through mentoring, leadership development programs, and more.  This committee is designed to be a successful springboard into the future leadership for AMP.

Live Committee

The Live Committee works to bring contracted live entertainment, such as comedy and music performances, from outside of the William & Mary community to the campus at a low cost for students.  The committee strives for diversity and aims to each out to all types of musical and comedic preferences that exist at W&M. Notable events from the Live Committee are the Welcome Back Concert, Fridays@5, and Homecoming Comedian. 

Special Events Committee

The Special Events Committee has the pleasure and challenge of dealing with loose guidelines.  Because of its large umbrella, Special Events often co-sponsors events with other committees and student organizations.  Members of this committee should be ready to use their creativity in dreaming up ideas for bringing new, never-before-seen events to William & Mary.  The flexibility of this committee allows for a wide variety from Last Day of Classes Festival to smaller arts and crafts events.  Big or small, this committee does it all.
