NAM Elections

As a NAM member, either past or current, we invite you to take the next step and consider involvement in the leadership of NAM. Your involvement provides an opportunity to influence the role that NAM plays within the mathematical community in the years to come.

Open Positions:

  • President
  • Outside Academia Member
  • Region A Member

The election to fill the vacancies for the NAM officers and other positions will be held in the Fall of 2017 with ballots opening on Friday November 3, 2017 and closing on Friday December 1, 2017. All terms will be for three years beginning on February 1, 2018. While finding time for service is never easy and is often selfless, serving on the NAM Board of Directors in any of these capacities would go a long way towards keeping the organization moving forward in a direction that can continue to inspire future generations.

Candidates must be a current member of NAM, and must be currently employed as a professional mathematician at an institution of higher learning (except for the Outside of Academia representative). For membership information click here. Please consider nominating yourself or someone else.
