AMS's president, Warren Washington, has been nominated by the country's president, Bill Clinton, to serve on the National Science Board. If appointed, Washington, along with five other nominees, will serve a six-year term until 10 May 2000. The Senate is expected to approve the nominations sometime during the fall. As a member of the 24-person board, Washington will help to participate in the board's functions: to assist the president and Congress in formulating national policies for science, engineering, and education, and to establish policies for the National Science Foundation (NSF).
