Being an ARISS ops team member myself I think it's important to realize that the AMSAT folks attend the ARISS-I meeting which is the international telecon. The ARISS ops team meets weekly on Wednesday afternoon and we are the group responsible for the hands on assistance of schools making ISS contacts. The international team handles the big picture and in the years I have been with the school side I have not heard any AMSAT board folks on the ops telecon.  AMSAT's educational direction seems to be more university level while ARISS is geared more to grade and high school level.
