AMS Committees

AMS Committees make significant contributions to our policies and to our various programs and services. 

The Council, Board of Trustees, and Executive Committee have authorized a variety of standing and ad hoc committees which are responsible to them. Appointments to most committees are made by the President, with advice from the Committee on Committees and the Editorial Boards Committee, with a focus on diversity and inclusivity across aspects including mathematical specialty, ethnicity, age, gender, geographic region, and other pertinent factors.
