The Illinois Section of the MAA was founded in 1917, two years after the national Association was chartered. The Illinois Section is the tenth-oldest in the Association. The mission of the MAA is to advance the mathematical sciences, especially at the collegiate level. Since its inception, the Illinois Section has worked to help the MAA meet its mission.

The Annual Meeting of the Illinois Section of the MAA will be held at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, on March 29-30, 2019.

Section NExT applications are due by March 8.

The course descriptions for Statistics and General Education Statistics in the articulation guide have been revised to reflect IAI requirements and current practice in the classroom. These revisions are planned for a vote at the Annual Meeting. The proposed changes change be found in both Word and PDF formats.

"The AMS and MAA have agreed that the 1998 agreement [to manage the Joint Mathematics Meetings] no longer meets the needs of either organization and will end following the Joint Mathematics Meetings in 2021". See "Meeting the Future" and "MAA and the Joint Mathematics Meetings" for more information.

The ISMAA newsletter, Out of Focus, has been discontinued because most of the content in the newsletter can also be found at this web site. Content that was unique to the newsletter will find a home at this site. For example, see the new From the Section Representative page found under the News section. To keep up with ISMAA news, bookmark and check back periodically!
