The Michigan MAA supports Black Lives Matter and dismantling systems of racism and oppression. The Michigan MAA Statement on Black Lives affirms our support of the broader movement to end racial injustice and suggests ways that Michigan MAA members can foster justice and equity within their mathematical communities. This statement offers suggestions for making classrooms inclusive and equitable, learning about race and ethnicity in mathematics, and supporting organizations dedicated to racial justice and equity within the mathematics community.

Congratulations to Sarah Koch (University of Michigan at Ann Arbor) for receiving the Distinguished Teaching Award, and to Nicholas Layman (Grand Valley State University) for receiving the Ron Mosier Memorial Award for Student Presentations given by the Michigan MAA at the 2021 Annual Section Meeting.
We regretfully announce that there will not be an Upper Peninsula Mathematics Meeting in fall 2021 because of the worsening COVID situation and not enough time to organize a virtual meeting.
The annual section meeting will be Friday-Saturday, April 8-9, 2022 at the Grand Rapids campus of Grand Valley State University.
