Professional Organizations


The American Mathematical Society (AMS) was founded in 1888 to further mathematical research and scholarship. The Society currently has approximately 30,000 members throughout the United States and around the world. It fulfills its mission through programs that promote mathematical research, increase the awareness of the value of mathematics to society, and foster excellence in mathematics education. The AMS website also contains a relatively up-to-date listing of professional societies,associations, and organizations that keep web sites of their own.

MAA Logo The Mathematical Association of America (MAA)is the world's largest organization devoted to the interests of collegiate mathematics. Members of the MAA receive many valuable benefits for modest dues. These benefits are designed to stimulate interest in mathematics by providing expository books and articles on contemporary mathematics and on recent developments at the frontiers of mathematical research, and by exchanging information about important events in the mathematical world. A major emphasis of the MAA is the teaching of mathematics at the collegiate level, but anyone who is interested in mathematics is welcome to join.
