, handling a wide range of logistical issues including advertising, arranging venues, developing schedules and content, identifying participants, and managing budgets. The ACMS generally organizes conferences on a fee-basis, and co-sponsors conferences with arrangements negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
In general, the fees for organizing conferences are as follows:
- Small Event – $200
- Large Event – $500
- Small Event – $500
- Large Event – $700
These fees reimburse the ACMS for administrative expenses, and they do not include the direct expenses associated with running the conference such as venue, translator, and food costs.

The Center handles negotiation and procurement of items, and offers accounting services for tracking budget expenses.

The ACMS is a not-for-profit, academic organization, and all fees go directly towards supporting administrative and programmatic expense at the Center.
