This page is designed to inform members of the Mathematical Association of America and others interested in collegiate level mathematics of meetings of interest to them. As often as possible these meetings are linked to a web page with additional information about the meeting. If no link has been established, then the only information we have about the meeting is given in this list.
To help you find the meetings that are of the most interest to you, the following links provide information about MAA Meetings, national and sectional, deadlines and guidelines for proposing a session at a national meeting.

Guidelines for Proposing an MAA Session (Minicourses, Short Courses, Contributed Paper Sessions, Invited Paper Sessions, Poster Sessions, Panel Sessions, or Workshops)
Guidelines for Proposing a Minicourse
Guidelines for Proposing a Short Course
Submit a proposal for a session at a national meeting.
While some presenters in a session will have presentations whose format and content relies on or relates to information in a commercially-available product, such as a book or authored software, the promotion of such products in a minicourse or panel session is not appropriate. Participants in a successful minicourse or panel session naturally will want to know more about the materials referenced, but the session may not be used to promote any particular product.
Interviews at National Meetings
The MAA recognizes the important role that our national meetings play in the hiring process, both for those seeking jobs and for departments. Especially for those on the job market, the application and interview process can be a stressful time, and it may be awkward for applicants to express their desire to modify the setting in a situation that they feel is less than ideal. Therefore, the MAA Board of Governors has adopted the following policy:
The MAA strongly discourages the use of personal hotel sleeping rooms as the site for professional interviews of prospective employees. This practice is intimidating for some job-seekers, particularly those who find the situation uncomfortable and possibly unsafe.
