The Managing Editors (Co-Editors-in-Chief), who also chair the Editorial Committee, will be elected by the Council, upon the recommendation of the Editorial Boards Committee (EBC). The other editors are appointed by the President upon recommendation of the EBC in consultation with the Managing Editors. The Managing Editors and the Editorial Committee are supported by a board of associate editors who are appointed by the President upon the recommendation of the EBC. Travel reimbursement for this committee has been designated at LEVEL B. Associate Editors are not eligible for travel, only the Managing Editors and the Editorial Committee.

Editors normally serve no more than two consecutive terms.

The [Editorial Boards] Committee shall recommend appointees to certain editorial committees to the AMS President and the Council. To that end, it shall solicit suggestions for those editorial committees by consulting with managing editors, current editorial committees, and other interested parties. The committee should take into account both the interests of the publications and the overall interests of the Society.
