What is MAA Connect?

MAA Connect is your platform to share ideas, ask questions, network, and collaborate with your peers. Best of all, because MAA Connect is integrated with our member database, you only have to remember one login and password.


We've used your information from our database to complete the basic parts of your profile, including your name, organization, and professional designations.

Now make it yours by filling out areas like education history and interests to help other members find you and connect. Don't forget to upload a picture for your profile. This helps people identify and get to know you.

Don't want everybody to see your information? No problem. You can edit your Privacy Settings by going to your profile and then looking under "My Account" in the drop down menu.

Peer Search

Look for other members by name, company or email address using the Directory link in the navigation bar. You can use the “Advanced Search” function to look for people using additional information or the community they belong to. Once you’ve found the person(s) that you’re looking for, you can view profiles, send messages or add as a contact directly from the search results page.


Take a look at all the possible communities to join by using the Communities menu tab. By default, it will show you the communities you already participate in. You can change this to “Communities I can join” using the filter options near the top of the page. Communities include various general forums as well as volunteer participation groups such as committees, sections, and SIGMAAs. To start, you will see the All MAA Members Community as well as a community for your Section where you can network with peers and familiarize yourself with the platform.

Joining a Community

Subscribe & personalize your experience. Once you’ve looked around, subscribe to any and all of the communities that interest you by clicking on the “Join” button. You’ll be prompted to specify how you want your messages from the community’s discussion group to be delivered to you:

  • Real Time: sends an email for each community post
  • Daily Digest: sends an email each morning with the previous day’s posts
  • No Emails: read and reply to posts through the community directly without email notification

NOTE: If you don’t see a “Join” button on a community, you either already belong to it or the community is private.


Participate in the conversation. All communities feature online discussion boards that can be used via email as well. Use the links next to posts to:

  • Reply to Discussion: sends your response to the entire group
  • Reply to Sender: send a private response to the author of the post
  • View Thread: see all the posts in a particular discussion in chronological order
  • Post Message: starts a new discussion thread

Start a conversation by posting your questions or thoughts. To start a new discussion in one of your communities you can use the “Post a Message” link under “Discussions” or post directly from the HTML emails you receive using the “Post Message” link. Want to include an attachment?

  • Click the “Attach” button
  • Name your document
  • Browse through your computer and select the file to add
  • Click “Upload”

TIP: We encourage you to tag your document to increase its searchability and to help other members find it easily.

Take Your Conversations On the Go!

MAA Connect now has a mobile app. Known as "Connected Community," the app can be found in both the Apple and Google Play stores. This great supplement to our desktop community allows you to carry on your conversations when you're out and about, be that at MAA MathFest, or at your local Section meetings. Just login using the domain as well as your standard MAA login, and you're ready to go! Key features include:

  • Ease of use
  • Browsing your community feeds
  • Messaging your connections
  • And more!

We hope you enjoy your MAA Connect experience. Contact with questions or call 800-331-1622.
