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 2020 Annual Meeting of the Illinois Section of the MAA will be held at the University of St. Francis, Joliet, on March 13-14, 2020. This conference will be the 100th meeting of our section, as well as the 100th anniversary of our host institution, and is on Pi Day -- definitely not one to miss!

In honor of this, any speaker who incorporates 100 or pi into their abstract will receive a special pi sticker at registration. See the Call for Presenters for more information on how to share you work!

Now is a great time to start thinking about institutional sponsorship for 2019-2020. Please encourage your institution to join us. Ordinary sponsorship ($50) includes unlimited free registration for undergraduates at the 2020 annual meeting; sustaining sponsorship ($100) includes three free faculty registrations in addition to unlimited free student registration, and speaker sponsorship ($200) includes the three free faculty registrations, unlimited free student registrations, and listing as an underwriter of a plenary speaker in the program.

Congratulations to the 2019 ISMAA award winners.

"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.
