Robert F. Judd (1956-2019): In memoriam

The AMS Board has honored Bob’s legacy and his remarkable commitment to the lives of our members and to the mission of the Society by naming the position of executive director the “Robert F. Judd Executive Director.” In recognition of Bob’s tireless efforts to provide financial stability for the Society, the Board has established a fund in his memory to endow the position of executive director that now bears his name. Bob touched all of our lives: we hope that you will give generously to the fund. Please click here to make a contribution. The revenue from this fund will help the AMS pay for its operations.
