Statements in Process

Statements Accepting Comments

AMS Statements that are being considered by the AMS Council for approval are posted on the AMS Web site at least thirty days before the Council vote. The Council may consider a statement either at one of the two regularly scheduled meetings each year, or at any time in between using e-mail discussion and electronic balloting. In addition, statement preparation does not follow a fixed schedule so statements may come up for consideration at any time of the year. AMS Members who are interested in providing input to statements are encouraged to check the AMS Web site regularly to see if any are under review at that time.
