  • Statement on Open Meetings: All meetings of AMS committees, boards, and the Council are, in principle, open to members of the Society, although portions of some meetings may be held in executive session when dealing with personnel issues, awards, or other matters of confidential nature. As a matter of courtesy and to ensure adequately sized meeting rooms, members wishing to observe a particular committee, board, or Council meeting should contact its chairperson in advance. Members may request a place on the agenda by following a similar procedure. Please feel free to contact AMS Headquarters for assistance.

  • Registration rates for the 104th Annual Meeting are the same for in-person and virtual participants. We made this decision so that we can offer a robust, flexible, and equitable experience for everyone, whether you are in-person or virtual. Other factors involved include:
    • Increased costs for the in-person experience (audiovisual expenses, food and beverage costs, facility rental, on-site labor, travel costs, health and safety protocols etc.)
    • Increased costs for the virtual experience (internet and hardware for live streaming, software for messaging and chat, labor, etc.)
    • It makes it easier for attendees to change their registration method from in-person to virtual and vice versa
    • It allows presenters the opportunity to present/facilitate discussion in-person or virtually with an in-person and virtual audience.

Financial Support

In keeping with our goal to ensure that anyone who wants to participate in the Annual Meeting can do so - the AMS supports a program to provide financial support for complimentary and reduced registration fees. There is a limited amount of funding available for this program. Those who can show financial need and/or are from professional groups that would typically not receive funding from their home institution to attend an AMS Annual Meeting will be considered.  This financial support covers reduced or complimentary registration fees, it does not cover travel or lodging. 

The application deadline was October 31st.  Applicants will be notified by November 15th.  

**If you apply for assistance, please do not register until you hear back from AMS.
