The American Mathematical Society is seeking applications and nominations of candidates for the position of Treasurer. The Treasurer is an officer of the Society and is appointed by the Council for a two-year term. The first term of the new Treasurer will begin February 1, 2021, with initial appointment expected in January 2020 in order that the Treasurer-designate may observe the conduct of Society business for a full year before taking office.

All necessary expenses incurred by the Treasurer in performance of duties for the Society are reimbursed.


The Treasurer should be a research mathematician and must have substantial knowledge of Society activities. Although the Treasurer is appointed by the Council for a term of two years, candidates should be willing to make a long-term commitment, as it is expected that the new Treasurer will be reappointed for subsequent terms pending successful performance reviews.
