Page 9 [Section II.B]: [Committees—cont.] Committees Mandated in the By-Laws, cont — Annual Committees — Annual Meeting Committees — Local Arrangements
By-Law definition: The By-Law definition of this committee is no longer accurate, as the administration of the Annual Meeting now resides with the AMS office. (By-Laws VII.C.3: “It shall be the duty of the Local Arrangements Committee to administer the Annual Meeting of the Society in its physical, logistical, and financial aspects.”)
Charge: The Local Arrangements Committee works with the central office of the AMS to assist with aspects of the Annual Meeting.
Constitution: rotation of members. Variable number of members. If the meeting is to be a joint one with another society, the committee should include one or more representatives of that society. The term of committee members is for one year. Since nearly all the work of the committee takes place at the meeting itself, members of the committee need not reside locally.
Timetable: The President, in consultation with the Executive Director, should appoint the chair of the committee as soon as possible after the location of the Annual Meeting concerned has been determined (no later than three years before that meeting). A detailed time and task line delineating all Annual Meeting activities resides with the AMS central office.
