The Editorial Board for CRUX with MAYHEM (CMEB) consists of the Editor-in-Chief, the Associate Editor, the Mayhem Editors, the Olympiad Editor, the Managing Editor and normally eight other members. The term of the Editor-in-Chief shall be five years. The terms of the other members of the CMEB shall also be five years and staggered. The Editor-in-Chief is appointed by, and accountable to the Board of Directors. The other members of the CMEB, except for the Mayhem Editors, are appointed by the Publications Committee. The Mayhem Editors are appointed by the Editor-in-Chief on a yearly basis, in consultation with the CRUX with MAYHEM Board. It is the responsibility of the Publications Committee to recommend to the Executive, for transmission to the Board, the appointment of the Editor-in-Chief. The procedures for the appointment of the Editor-in-Chief and the other members of the CMEB are given in the ``Guidelines for Editorial Searches" in the Terms of Reference of the Publications Committee. The names and addresses of the Editor-in-Chief and the other members of the CMEB shall appear in each issue of CRUX with MAYHEM.

The purpose of the other members of the Editorial Board is to help the Editor-in Chief with various aspects of the content of CRUX with MAYHEM and to provide such other advice as may be requested from time to time.

The Editor-in-Chief can veto proposals of the Board by giving written notice to the Board through the President of the Society. Such a proposal, concerning matters of policy, if passed a second time by the Board within one year of the veto, becomes official policy and is not subject to further veto by the Editor-in-Chief.

The Managing Editor is responsible for overseeing the financial operations of CRUX with MAYHEM and, in consultation with the Editors-in-Chief, assists in the production and related aspects of CRUX with MAYHEM.
