    The National Association of Mathematicians, Inc. (NAM) will host its Faculty Conference on Research and Teaching Excellence. This two-day hybrid conference, geared towards faculty from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs),will include the Albert Turner Bharucha-Reid Lecture, contributed talks from faculty, and a panel discussion.

    Dr. Ebenezer George, from the University of Memphis, will give the 2023 Albert Turner Bharucha-Reid Lecture


    The National Association of Mathematicians is pleased to offer the 2023 Faculty Conference on Research and Teaching Excellence (FCRTE) a conference to invigorate your research network and exchange mathematical ideas within the NAM community. There is a call for Presenters to submit abstracts for contributed talks. Each talk will be 25 minutes in length (with 5 minutes for questions). Please complete the lodging application and abstract submission form by Wednesday March 15, 2023 at 11:59pm EST if you are interested in giving a talk at the FCRTE.

    Additionally, there is funding to support lodging for participants at the conference hotel, on Friday evening (Elements Hampton Peninsula Town Center). Please complete the same lodging application and abstract submission form by March 15th 2023 to apply for one of these rooms. Preference will be given to NAM members in good standing and those giving presentations at FCRTE.

    ** Registration, lodging, and abstract forms: IS NOW OPEN **

    Albert Turner Bharucha-Reid Lecture Title: On Discrete Finite Exchangeability with Applications to Analysis of Clustered Data

    E. Olusegun George

    Department of Mathematical Sciences

    The University of Memphis


    Bruno de Finetti’s famous representation theorem which postulates that the joint distribution of every finite subset of an infinite sequences of exchangeable random variables is a mixture of their distributions under conditional independence is generally regarded as the backbone of Bayesian inference and is considered a motivating factor for the use of latent variables in non-Bayesian random effects mixed models. However, as was later noted by Diaconis and Freedman, de Finetti’s theorem is not valid for intrinsically finite set of exchangeable random variables. In this talk, we outline derivations of representations of joint distribution of finitely exchangeable binary and multinomial random variables and discuss some applications to analysis of clustered preclinical data in general and to construction of stochastically ordered trend tests in particular.

    The 2023 NAM-MAA Harold H Blackwell lecturer wil be Dr. Ron Buckmire, Occidental College. This lecture will occur on August 4, 2023 as part of the MAA MathFest in Tampa, FL.

    In his talk titled, Different Differences, Dr. Buckmire will discuss different examples and contexts of the word “difference.”

    In his own words: First, I will explain how different kinds of difference quotients known as nonstandard finite differences are used to approximate the derivatives that appear in differential equations as a solution technique. Second, I will provide some ways different aspects of my identity (may) have affected my career trajectory. Third, I will present comments on how the mathematics community treats “difference” and provide suggestions for how the future for other mathematicians who differ from the norm can be different from how we were treated in the past.

    **Nominations Requested**

    The 2023 NAM Undergraduate MATHFest is a three-day meeting, which will be held from Friday, September 22 through Sunday, September 24. This event rotates around the country based on NAM's regional structure, and this year, will be hosted by Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, GA. It is held annually to encourage students to pursue advanced degrees in mathematics and mathematics education. The conference is geared for undergraduates from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), although all are welcome to attend.

    We are currently accepting nominations for the J Ernest Wilkins Lecture. Please go to to submit your nominations and for more instructions on nomination submissions.

    *More information to come.*
