AMI Offices Open in Wake of Terrorist Attack on Pentagon

Wednesday, September 12, 2001

AMI offices are open today after yesterday’s terrorist attack on the Pentagon, which occurred in full view of the Institute's offices in downtown Arlington, VA. However, members attempting to reach AMI staff may continue to have difficulty due to busy phone lines. AMI office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The Pentagon is located approximately three miles south of AMI offices.
AMI follows federal government policy and closed its offices around 10:30 a.m., urging staff to go home to be with family members.
AMI has received numerous letters and calls from associates around the world expressing sorrow and outrage at the attacks.
As a result of the terrorist attacks, AMI has canceled the following scheduled events:

  • U.S. Hide Skin and Leather Association Conference scheduled for September 13 and 14 in Chicago at the Swiss Hotel. Registrants will receive an official cancellation notice. Contact Gus Siokis or Len Condon for more information.


  • Worker Safety/Human Resources Conference Planning Meeting scheduled for September 14 in Chicago. No plans to reschedule the meeting have been made yet. Contact Rob Rosado for more information.
