The Membership Division consists of the Affiliates and Awards committees, as well as, an Associate Vice-President of Membership. The overall emphasis of the Membership Division is to support the AMTE membership! The two committees within the Division support the AMTE membership in different ways. The Affiliates Committee supports members in establishing and maintaining affiliate organizations to support mathematics teacher educators in their local area. The members of this committee each serve as a regional representative supporting the affiliates in their region. The Awards Committee supports members by recognizing outstanding members through the various AMTE awards (Judith Jacob Lecturer, Susan Gay Travel, Excellence in Teaching, Scholarship, & Service, EMS Scholarship, and more!). The Associate Vice-President of Membership supports the Division by focusing on benefits and resources to support all AMTE members.
The Professional Learning Division is committed to supporting the professional development of our AMTE members through many initiatives. This work is spearheaded by the Associate Vice Presidents for each of the five committees: Conference Committee, Program Committee, Professional Development Committee, STaR Fellows Program, and the Technology Committee. Each of these committees supports the membership in different ways. The Conference Committee and Program Committee work hard to locate and arrange for the conference site as well as develop the content offered at the conference. The Professional Development Committee provides on-going professional development through webinar offerings and mentoring opportunities within the Annual Conference.The STaR Fellows Program Committee supports new members into the Mathematics Teacher Education community through the a summer institute, academic year networking via electronic means, and a follow-up session as part of the Annual Conference. The goals of the Technology Committee are to recommend strategies, policies and activities related to increasing awareness and improving integration of technology in mathematics teacher education.
The Communications & Outreach Division facilitates AMTE’s efforts to communicate information and resources to its members, sponsors, and donors. This Division encompasses all marketing, media, and sponsorship-related activities of the organization. Currently, particular efforts focus on AMTE’s online presence, sponsorship campaigns and opportunities, and marketing the brand of AMTE in the public arena.
