Information Forums

The AMS provides opportunities throughout the year for mathematical sciences department chairs and leaders to attend informational sessions on a number of topics including mathematics education, science policy and funding, and departmental planning.  These forums are an occasion for department chairs to interact with their peers and to hear from congressional officials and federal agency representatives.
