Due to the termination of MMPC, the MAA advised us to revise our bylaws. An ad hoc committee was formed last year to propose a revised bylaws that reflected the needs of the section and incorporated required bylaws changes mandated by the MAA. That work is now complete, the Executive committee has approved the new bylaws, as has the MAA. Please see the summary of major changes and compare the new proposed bylaws to our current bylaws. The Michigan MAA section members will vote in Spring 2023 whether to approve these new bylaws. More details such as the method of voting and the last day to vote will be posted here later.
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.
