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 Position:

  • Region B Member

The election to fill the vacancies for the NAM officers and other positions will be held in the Spring of 2020 with ballots opening on Wednesday May 6, 2020 and closing on Sunday May 24, 2020 at 11:59 PM. Election results will be announced in early June. The term will begin upon election and effective until January 31, 2022. 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.
