Hello World!

Members of the UVic AWM Student Chapter posed for a photo.

The UVic AWM Student Chapter had its first meeting on November 21, 2019. We formed the group, elected a president, vice president, and secretary (Joanna Niezen, Laura Teshima, and Felicia Halliday resp.) and discussed our goals for the group. The group aims to meet approximately once a month, with at least one meeting per year to include bureaucracy. Our initial focus will be outreach to gain membership through fun events which promote the goals of the Association for Women in Mathematics.
