Professional Organizations
Professional societies provide an excellent means of keeping current and in touch with other professionals in the field. These groups can play a key role in your development and keep you abreast of what is happening in your field. Associations promote the interests of their members and provide a network of contacts that can help you find jobs and move your career forward. They can offer a variety of services including job referral services, continuing education courses, insurance, travel benefits, periodicals, and meeting and conference opportunities. The following is a partial list of professional associations serving mathematicians and employers.  A broader list of professional associations is also available by clicking here.

American Mathematical Society
The American Mathematical Society was created to further mathematical research and scholarship. Founded in 1888, it now has approximately 30,000 members, including mathematicians throughout the United States and around the world. It continues to fulfill its mission with programs that promote mathematical research, increase the awareness of its value to society, and foster excellence in mathematics education.

Association for Women in Mathematics
The Association for Women in Mathematics is a non-profit organization founded in 1971 with a continuing goal to encourage women in the mathematical sciences. The organization sponsors a variety of programs and awards to encourage girls and women in the mathematical sciences. Among these is the Noether Lectures, which honors women who have made fundamental and sustained contributions to the mathematical sciences.  Bonita Saunders, who is profiled in the Career Cornerstone Center is a recent honoree.

Mathematical Association of America
The Mathematical Association of America is the largest professional society of college and university mathematics teachers in the world. Today MAA's 30,000 members include college and university faculty, two-year college faculty, high school teachers, government and corporate workers, graduate school faculty, research mathematicians, and graduate and undergraduate students.

National Association of Mathematicians
The National Association of Mathematicians is a non-profit professional organization which has always had as its main objectives the promotion of excellence in the mathematical sciences and the promotion of the mathematical development of underrepresented American minorities. It also aims to address the issue of the serious under-representation of minorities in the workforce of mathematical scientists.

Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics
The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) began in 1951 and now exists to ensure the strongest interactions between mathematics and other scientific and technological communities through membership activities, publication of journals and books, and conferences.
