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, and in Spring 2023 the members of the Michigan MAA section voted to approve these new bylaws.
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.
