Message from the President

I would like to commend all of our members for their perseverance and dedication to students. On a daily basis you are fulfilling the mission of CMC - to provide "a rigorous and challenging mathematical program supported by high expectations." In this season of presents, you are the ones nurturing the "priceless" gift of mathematical reasoning. Thank you!

I would also like to extend my gratitude to our outgoing Executive and Section Board members. Your past two years of leadership and service have strengthened our organization and allowed us to promote continual improvement towards excellence in the teaching of mathematics. Your countless hours and multiple talents are much appreciated.

Finally, returning from last week's exhilarating conference at Asilomar, I would like to congratulate the tireless volunteers of CMC-North who orchestrated a weekend of networking, learning, and renewal. 

To our entire CMC community, I wish you all a time of relaxing and recharging with family, friends and festivities. See you next year!  Vicki
