Dear Academy Members,
In this first opportunity to write to you as President of the Academy, I would simply like to extend my thanks to all of you. Your support of the Academy as a member is deeply appreciated. I felt this gratitude in a special way at our recent Annual Meeting, graciously and superbly hosted by our colleagues at the University of Virginia at Charlottesville, when I had the honor of congratulating winners of the many prizes the Academy awards annually. These prizes, as well as the numerous grants and fellowships awarded each year, are made possible, in part, by membership dues. The financial support of your membership dues is critical to all the MAA’s programs.
I am also grateful for the precious gift of your time. All of the Academy’s officers and committee members are volunteers, as are all of those organizing each year’s annual meeting and participating in other MAA events. Please know that your efforts are seen and valued. With gratitude and warmest regards,
Maureen C. Miller, President of the Medieval Academy of America
