Governor's Report

The MAA Board of Governors met on Tuesday, January 14, in Baltimore, MD. Here the items of interest to MAA members:

At the close of the Joint MAA-AMS meeting in Baltimore in January 2003, Ron Graham became the fiftieth President of the MAA. It was an eventful meeting for Graham, since he also received the Steele Prize for lifetime achievement as a research mathematician (www.maa.org/news/030603president.html).  The Iowa section is looking forward to having Ron Graham as their invited speaker this Spring!

The next Board of Governors meeting will be this summer at the Boulder MathFest. For a complete list of upcoming national meetings, see www.maa.org/meetings/national_meetings.html.

Respectfully submitted,

Ruth I. Berger
