Call for Volunteers for the MAA Program Committee

October 12, 2017

The MAA Program Committee is seeking two members to assist with the development of the program for the 2018 MAA Annual Meeting in Bay City, Michigan.  Working with the co-chairs, Program Committee members will send out calls for proposals, identify interesting session topics, solicit speakers, and solicit chairs for sessions.  The Program Committee is also responsible for securing a keynote presenter and pre-conference workshop speaker.

The Program Committee creates the annual meeting program. For this, the Program Committee writes all the session descriptions, a summary of the keynote presentation, and a summary for the pre-conference workshop. Working with the Local Arrangements Committee, the Program Committee also identifies relevant photographs from the conference area and headshots for the keynote and pre-conference workshop speaker.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Program Committee, please email Caitlin Brennecke (cait.brennecke@gmail.com) by October 19, 2017.
