SAMAC has 24 associates, of which 13 are Mexican AMI Trainers.

The official Board of Directors were appointed during SAMAC's General Assembly, which was held in México City in June 2016.

SAMAC continues to organise an annual Mexican Congress, inviting associates, trainers, partners and members across Latin America to meet, discuss relevant topics and attend lectures from key speakers. The XXI Mexican Congress, in Guanajuato, was held on February 25 - 27, 2016. The title of this Congress was "Education, a Shared Task" and speakers involved were: Silvia Dubovoy, Philip O'Brien, Maria Teresa Vidales, Jayne Arellano, J. McKeever, Cecilia Elguero and Eduardo Cuevas. Over 550 participants attended the Congress, and special recognition was made to Silvia Dubovoy for her important participation in the Mexican and Global Montessori Movements.

The next XXII Mexican Montessori Congress is set to take place in Mexico City, and has been scheduled for 1 - 4 March 2017. The following speakers have confirmed their participation: AMI Executive Director, Lynne Lawrence and AMI Trainers: Judith Orion, Baiba Krumins-Grazzini and Maria Teresa Vidales.

SAMAC have been very successful in their distribution of Montessori books, which are published by Pierson in Spanish, and sent to individuals and organisations across Mexico and other Latin American countries. They are currently distributing seven books, the most recent titled "Il Bambino in Famiglia", which has been translated to Spanish, by Guadalupe Borbolla.

Their web site includes the following sections: Frequent Questions about Montessori; Job Opportunities; Training Centers; Congress; What's Montessori.
