Associate Treasurer

 Help Guide AMS Fiscal Policy


The Associate Treasurer helps administer and supervise AMS fiscal policies in the interest of the mathematical community.

You know finance and you know the AMS. Now you have the chance to play a leading role in managing AMS policies, expenditures, investments, and budgets, while following trends in finance. The American Mathematical Society seeks applications and nominations of candidates for the post of Associate Treasurer. This individual is an officer of the Society appointed by the Council to a two-year term beginning February 1, 2022. All necessary expenses incurred by the Associate Treasurer in performance of duties for the Society are reimbursed, including travel and communications.


We welcome applications from PhD mathematicians who have substantial knowledge of Society activities. Although the Associate Treasurer is appointed for a term of two years, candidates willing to make a longer commitment will be preferred, as it is expected that the Associate Treasurer will be reappointed for subsequent terms pending successful performance reviews. The AMS strives to serve mathematicians of all disciplines in an inclusive, equitable, and welcoming fashion. Candidates that share in this approach are strongly encouraged to apply.


The Associate Treasurer has many duties parallel to those of the Treasurer:

  • Administering or supervising administration of fiscal policies in the interest of the mathematical community, as determined by the Trustees.
  • Monitoring funds, investments, budgets, and trends of finance over periods of years, and reviewing salary policy for AMS employees and its applications to individuals.
  • Serving ex officio as a member of the Board of Trustees, Council, and other committees, as well as serving as Secretary of the Board of Trustees.
  • In addition, the Associate Treasurer serves as Secretary of the Mathematical Reviews Corporation, as a member of the Retirement Plan Investment Committee, and as a non-voting member of the Mathematical Reviews Editorial Committee.


A Search Committee, with AMS Treasurer Douglas Ulmer as Chair, is seeking and reviewing applications. Direct nominations and questions should be sent to the Chair of the Search Committee: Persons wishing to apply may do so on by submitting a CV, letter of interest describing the applicant's interest and qualifications, and the names and contact information for three references. References will only be contacted with the explicit permission of the candidate.

For full consideration, applications and supporting documentation should be received by July 1, 2021.

The AMS supports equality of opportunity and treatment for all participants, regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disabilities, veteran status, or immigration status.
