MET Board of Trustees

You may already know NCTM's Mathematics Education Trust’s (MET) mission: MET channels the generosity of contributors through the creation and funding of grants, awards, honors, and other projects that support the improvement of mathematics teaching and learning. But who are the dedicated volunteers who administer MET programs?

MET is administered by the MET Board of Trustees, appointed by the NCTM president with approval of the Board of Directors of NCTM. The MET Board is composed of four members who serve four-year terms (acting as chair in their last year). The MET Board of Trustees establishes policies and procedures for the Mathematics Education Trust; establishes and monitors policy for the investments of MET funds; initiates and monitors MET award programs; selects or oversees the selection of awardees in MET programs; and, oversees the fundraising aspects of the Trust.
