Working Together to Improve the Mathematical Science Community

The Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS), hosted at Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota, is an umbrella organization consisting of seventeen professional societies all of which have as one of their primary objectives the increase or diffusion of knowledge in one or more of the mathematical sciences. Its purpose is to promote understanding and cooperation among these national organizations so that they work together and support each other in their efforts to promote research, improve education, and expand the uses of mathematics.
