Spring Rug Auction is back! 

It's a New Year and we have a new venue for this ever popular event. Once again the Canadian Association and the American Association are teaming up to bring you an evening of good food, good fun and good friends. If you are in the market for a beautiful heirloom carpet come prepared by knowing what size you're looking for, a color scheme, budget, and then have fun as the bids are thrown out.  You may just be lucky enough to go home with that 'one of a kind' rug. 

It's a really fun night (cheap too) with a light dinner and free flow beer / wine.

See details below.

On March 30th, the AAM held it's Annual General Election where members were invited to attend an updated Security Talk presented by the U.S. Embassy staff and stayed on to participate in our AGM.  All resolutions on the ballot were passed and we have voted in a new President for the 2017/18 term.  Wanda Holmes has agreed to take on this position, Meredith Tomkovitch was voted in as the new Secretary and Leisa Puri will be continuing as AAM Treasurer. The executive board is still looking to fill one position, that of Vice President.  If you are interested in this position, please contact Wanda at

Wanda and her team will bring fresh ideas and a new energy to the American Association of Malaysia and we are so happy to have a great team in place.


By joining the AAM you are eligible for some fun benefits. The AAM holds several local tours and workshops each month on a variety of topics of interest to residents in KL. Some of the workshops are especially designed for newcomers as they struggle to learn the culture and customs of Malaysia. Lunch Bunch and First Friday Coffee both are monthly fixtures that feature restaurants in KL and provide social opportunities for members.  Special events are scattered throughout the year and sometimes revolve around American holidays and seasons. There is also our annual Christmas bazaar which happens in November.  This is a great place to buy local presents for loved ones back home.  In other words, there is something for everyone!
