AAML Regional Represenatives

Page history last edited by Tom 6 years ago




AAML has appointed regional representatives to aide with communication between the AAML Executive Committee and educators in different regions of the state.  A regional representative may also choose to host events in that part of the state.  We hope these representatives will help facilitate sharing of information, ideas and concerns across the state.  NOTE:  Some regional representatives have either not been appointed or have not yet accepted appointments.  If you know of a mathematics leader you would like to recommend to serve in a region not yet represented, please contact Tim Brister, AAML President, at tbrister@harding.edu
