Joint Mathematics Meetings

The AMS and the MAA have shared management, as well as contributed equally to the programming, of the Joint Mathematics Meetings under an agreement that has been in place since 1998. Through extensive discussions over the last 5 years, AMS and MAA have agreed that the 1998 agreement no longer meets the needs of either organization and will end following the Joint Mathematics Meetings in 2021.

The current business/management model for the meeting results in a loss of approximately $300,000/year to MAA, with AMS absorbing an even greater cost. While this represents a service to the mathematical sciences community, the MAA Board determined that it is not sustainable.

Beginning in 2022, MAA national meeting activities will occur at MAA MathFest in the summer. The MAA will build on the continued growth of MAA MathFest and will also direct resources to better support MAA Sections at meetings like this and other programs that expand access and services to more members.
