BAMM offers a variety of programs, educational and networking events, and ERC credential maintenance credits. This is a great opportunity for you to connect to the San Francisco Bay Area Global Mobility community, expand your knowledge and extend your network.
BAMM is very fortunate to have a strong collaboration between our corporate community and our supplier community. To maintain a professional and respectful environment at BAMM events, attendees are not allowed to openly solicit other attendees. This means handing out literature, offering your business card, asking to set up a meeting or call, and other similar activities that would be construed as active solicitation unless it is specifically requested. BAMM wants our events to be a comfortable environment for all attendees so we may continue to offer a valuable and welcoming forum for our growing membership.
BAMM is committed to providing credential maintenance for ERC credits. BAMM’s quarterly meetings are typically held on Fridays throughout the year.
BAMM is offering two scholarships for $2,000 for Bay Area high school seniors that were relocated between 9th and 12th grade. The scholarship application period is from October 1 through February 24. For More information and to apply

We are committed as an organization to 5 key objectives: Education, Support, Promotion, Networking, and Philanthropy.
Jumpstart Northern California
Jumpstart is a national early education organization that recruits and trains college students and community Corps members to serve preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. Our proven curriculum helps children develop the language and literacy skills they need to be ready for kindergarten, setting them on a path to close the achievement gap before it is too late.
When Jumpstart Northern California launched in 1999, we served just 100 children in underserved neighborhoods in San Francisco. With the help and generosity of our supporters, our region continues to grow and inspire children to learn, college students to teach, families to become involved in their children's education, and communities to progress together.
During the school year, more than 780 preschool children throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, who are most at risk of school failure, join 200 college Corps members to grow and learn together in Jumpstart sessions. And it’s proven that our programs work: 95% of children served by Jumpstart Northern California make gains in key kindergarten-readiness skills over the school year, preparing them to succeed in school and in life.
As the only program of its kind, Jumpstart infuses the community with a new generation of dedicated and well-trained teachers; after serving with Jumpstart, 94% of Northern California college Corps members indicate that they intend to pursue careers in education or public service.
We build a perimeter of hope around the individual and family members comprised of those services that become immediate concerns for individuals impacted by our targeted neurological diseases. Our perimeter of services includes, but are not limited to: Mental Services, Financial Planning, legal Assistance, Real Estate Home Sale and Home Purchase Assistance, Financing, Rental Assistance, Temporary Housing, Van Line and Do-It-Yourself moving (D.I.Y), Tuition Grants and several other concierge services. Approximately 55% of all donations we receive are used to subsidize or in some instances cover the cost of these transitional services. Approximately 25% of all donations are used to fund research for our targeted diseases. Our goal in working with our various affiliates is to raise industry standards, recognize and reward innovation and continually monitor performance and progress. We invest in those service companies and individuals that show the greatest promise in transitional support and in finding a cure for the major neurological diseases we target.
BAMM is fortunate to have a strong collaboration between our corporate and supplier membership. To ensure that we maintain that strong partnership, we ask all our members and non-members to be courteous and respectful of each other by adhering to our non-solicitation policy.
The purpose of BAMM is to provide a forum for individuals in the relocation industry to connect and network with each other. Individuals are not allowed to openly use information obtained through BAMM to solicit BAMM participants for business. This includes providing a business card or marketing materials, asking for an appointment or any other activity that may be construed as solicitation without the recipients’ request.
Should a complaint be made to the Board of Directors, the situation will be researched and appropriate action will be taken.
Thank you for respecting this policy. We look forward to seeing you at our BAMM events.
