The Association maçonnique internationale (English: International Masonic Association) was an international grouping of freemasonic grand lodges which existed from 1921 until 1950. Most of the founding members were associated with Grand Orient freemasonry; the Grand Orient de France, Grand Orient de Belgique, Grande Loge Suisse Alpina, Grand Orient of Italy and Grand Orient of the Netherlands, but it also included the Grand Lodge of France and the "regular" Grand Lodge of New York. The association collapsed in 1950 as the Grande Loge Suisse Alpina moved away from Grand Orient freemasonry to be recognised as regular by the United Grand Lodge of England.

The initiative for the AMS was that of Isaac Reverchon who was the Jewish Grand Master of the Grande Loge Suisse Alpina. He was the secretary for the convening meeting in Geneva on 1921. Its purported aim was to maintain existing relations and extend further ones between world liberal freemasonry. The organisation was strongly anti-national, explicitly calling on freemasons to oppose National Socialism on 6 May 1933 at its Congress of Brussles. Francisco Franco also claimed that the Spanish patriotic politician José Calvo Sotelo had been assassinated in 1936 in "accordance with orders from the Grand Secretary of Freemasonry in Geneva."
