Guidelines for Book Sales at Section Meetings

The MAA offers your section the opportunity to sell MAA books at a special meeting price to your attendees. While gaining more exposure for the association and MAA books, your section will also receive a 10% commission on total sales at the meeting.

Click here for a summary of the different ways that members can purchase MAA books.

To order, please send an e-mail with the following information to Erica Teal.

  • Which section is making the request
  • The contact information for the person in charge of the sale
  • The date of the sale
  • The date by which you would like to receive the books/materials
  • The address to which the books/materials should be sent
  • Any special requests or needs (specific titles, authors, quantities, themes, etc)
  • An estimate of how many people you think will be attending the meeting

Please Note: If your section decides to host a book sale at their meeting, they must contact headquarters at least one month prior to the event. The MAA will no longer be offering the cash/carry option at section meetings, due to state and local sales tax laws. Instead, your section will receive a full pricelist of discounted titles and take book orders at meetings. Orders will then be sent to headquarters for processing and shipment to the requested address of the buyer.
