view in conference program

The AMS Centennial is coming up in 2019, this milestone is a chance to rethink, improve, and advance the Society.  The AMS Centennial provides a special opportunity to contemplate how the Society will prepare to actively position itself to have even greater success and a larger impact in this new century than it had in its first.  During this town hall meeting, invited speakers will engage the AMS membership in a discussion of future challenges and opportunities as the Society reaches its 100th year; AMS’s role in addressing and capturing those challenges and opportunities will also be considered.  Several key topics will be identified and an invited speaker will talk for three to five minutes about that specified topic; the floor will then be opened to the audience for further discussion. To ensure full engagement of all attendees, audience remarks should be limited to three minutes and presented in a civil manner.
