During the first weekend of April, the AMATYC board met to discuss many topics. One of the major topic discussed was the adoption of a new mission and vision statement for AMATYC. The new mission statement for AMATYC is
To provide high quality professional development, to advocate and collaborate at all levels, and to build communities of learners for all involved in mathematics education in the first two years of college.
The new vision statement for AMATYC is
To be the leading voice and resource for excellence in mathematics education in the first two years of college.
The next step is to develop the new strategic plan. The purpose of a strategic plan is to take the organization from where it is right now (the mission) to where it wants to be (the vision). The strategic plan for 2018-2023 will be presented during a forum at the AMATYC Annual Conference in Denver. If you are attending the conference, please attend the forums to provide your input. The board will approve the final version of the strategic plan at its spring board meeting of 2017, and present the plan to the delegate assembly at the 2017 conference in San Diego.
