The Secretary

The Secretary participates in formulating policy for the Society, participates actively in governance activities, plays a key role in managing committee structures, oversees the scientific program of meetings, and helps to maintain institutional memory. 

The secretary

  • organizes and coordinates the Council and its committees;
  • serves as a member of the Council, Executive Committee, and several other committees, including the policy committees, the Development Committee, and the Editorial Boards Committee;
  • works closely with the President to coordinate and administer the activities of committees;

The AMS Associate Secretaries

The AMS Associate Secretaries play key roles in creating the scientific programs of AMS meetings, as well as providing essential input to several AMS committees.

  • Each is responsible for two sectional meetings per year in their respective geographic section. This includes overall responsibility for the scientific program, as well as the responsibility of arranging host institutions and guiding local organizers.
  • Once every four years an Associate Secretary has primary responsibility for the scientific program at the January Joint Mathematics Meetings.
  • The AMS conducts an active international joint meeting program, and Associate Secretaries are involved in these meetings on a rotating basis.
  • Associate Secretaries are supported by, and work closely with, the AMS Department of Meetings and Conferences.
