The Joint Policy Board for Mathematics (JPBM) consists of the American Mathematical Society, the American Statistical Association, the Mathematical Association of America, and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

The Board has nearly 55,000 mathematicians and scientists who are members of the four organizations.

Each April, JPBM celebrates Mathematics Awareness Month to increase public understanding of and appreciation for mathematics. Every year there is a theme for the Mathematics Awareness Month. This started off as the Mathematics Awareness Week celebration in 1986.

JPBM Communications Award[edit]

Each January at the Joint Mathematics Meeting JPBM gives its Communications Award to a journalist or other communicator for bringing accurate mathematical information to non-mathematical audiences.
