Liaison Responsibilities

Here are some of the types of communications the Liaison may expect to receive from the MAA:

Here is what we will ask Liaisons to do:

  1. Forward to other members of the department any of the items above of special interest to their colleagues;
  2. Encourage all faculty and students to join the Association, participate in sectional and national activities, and subscribe to MAA publications such as Math Horizons, MAA's popular magazine for undergraduate students;
  3. Encourage participation in Putnam and Mathematical Modeling competitions and the formation of a Student Chapter on your campus, if you don't already have one;
  4. Serve as conduits of news from Departments to Section newsletter editors and Webmasters;
  5. Act as a resource for Section Public Information Officers in their efforts to educate and inform the general public about the mathematics community.
  6. From time to time, the MAA may request feedback - information or opinions. Liaisons' responses will help shape directions of existing programs and guide new programmatic activities.
  7. Make suggestions to the Committee on MAA/Departmental Liaisons, at any time, about ways to improve the Liaisons program.
  8. Make suggestions, via the Committee on MAA/Departmental Liaisons, at any time, about ways to improve the MAA or MAA activities or programs.
