How do members promote the goals of the Society?

Individual members have an opportunity to promote the goals of the Society by participating in several areas of CMS programs, such as: volunteering their time and expertise; engaging in CMS committees and editorial boards; and attending our bi-annual research meetings.

The contribution of all CMS members allows us to promote the application of math in Canadian industry; to support math outreach; and by helping support math enrichment opportunities. This will ensure that we, all together, sustain mathematics now and for future generations.
