MAA Certificate of Meritorious Service
At its August meeting in 1983, the Mathematical Association of America Board of Governors voted to establish a Certificate for Meritorious Service to be presented for extraordinary contributions and outstanding efforts consistent with the stated purposes of the MAA and the Section. The first such awards were presented at the August 1984 meeting.
At the Sectional level, each Section is entitled, and encouraged, to nominate one person for the award every five years. For this purpose, the Sections of the Association are separated into five groups, with one group of Sections making their nominations to the Board each year on a rotating basis. At each January meeting of the Association, honorees from roughly six Sections are recognized. The Rocky Mountain Section is included in the ··· 2/ ···7 rotation. However, selection must be completed by May of the preceding year to be approved by the National Board of Governors at their summer meeting preceding the joint meeting.
