Government Relations and Programs

The AMS Office of Government Relations is at the center of our science policy and advocacy efforts, and works to connect the mathematics community with Washington decision makers who impact science and education funding.

The AMS is represented in Washington by Associate Executive Director and Director of the Office of Government Relations Karen Saxe, as well as Office of Government Relations Assistant Director Anita Benjamin and Assistant to the Associate Executive Director Paula Olugbemi.

All AMS members are warmly invited to drop by our office in Dupont Circle. If you are planning a visit, and we have fair warning, we can arrange visits for you with your representatives in Congress, help you figure out what to talk with them about, and likely accompany you on these visits.
