Since its founding in 1969, the National Association of Mathematicians (NAM) has been maintained by the countless contributions of volunteers, members, officers, supporters, and friends who were committed to NAM's mission and purpose. Today, NAM continues its mission thanks to these key contributions of its past and present membership and community. As NAM moves its mission forward into the next generation, it is important to reflect on the lives and experiences of key figures from NAM's history, as well as the challenges that lie ahead, given the last two years of the global pandemic. This panel discussion is dedicated to remembering and sharing the stories of the lives of key contributors from NAM's history and to learning from these stories what is needed to support the next generation of NAM. Panelists are to be announced.
