MAA to the Power of New: Building Our Future

This summer we are moving quickly toward the next chapter of the MAA. While our staff is temporarily working remotely, our contractors are building out the new HQ at 11 Dupont. We can’t wait to see you at our new offices when they open later this year. Check out some progress photos from the build-out:

 

 

In the meantime, we are excited to prepare for MAA MathFest 2022 in Philadelphia, our first in-person meeting since 2019! Our teams are creating in-person and virtual experiences to welcome you back to our annual summer meeting. We’ll have engaging and fun experiences planned for the MAA Pavilion, including special presentations from our membership department on the upcoming upgrade to your MAA Member Portal. Also, keep an eye out for this year’s brand new President’s Ignite Celebration on Friday night. More information about that special event coming in the next issue of MAA FOCUS.

 
 
The future is bright here at MAA, and we are excited to continue this journey with our community.

Today is the last day MAA Headquarters will be located at 1529 18th Street Northwest in Washington, DC. We have called this location home for over 50 years. After we announced the sale of the building in 2021 to the University of Utah, our staff have spent countless hours packing and organizing the pieces of the past. We collected photographs and documents that tell the rich story of MAA and are prepared for our move. 

 

Don’t worry, though! We are staying in the neighborhood. Our new location will also be in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, DC. 

 

As we wrap up our time at 18th Street N.W., please enjoy the video below featuring our very own Max O’Hern, Digital Events Specialist, as he takes us through the place we called home for over half a century.

 

 

 

This physical move for MAA is in sync with the overall organizational transformation we have been working towards. Our staff, programs, brand, and internal processes are also progressing to new levels. MAA to the Power of New, or as we’ll be calling it MAANEW, starts today and will be a place for us to share this journey with our members and our community. Stay tuned for updates as we usher in a new era for the MAA together.
