Welcome to the Liverpool Mathematical Society

AGM and Committee Meeting

The AGM will take place on 20 September 2022 at 17:00, immediately followed by a Committee Meeting. Details will be posted at Event_20220920_AGM and Event_20220920_Committee_Meeting as they become available.


The Society has been awarded a grant of 2100 a year for 3 years to support our activities; it will be sufficient to fund Open Challenge and our lecture programme, including the Christmas lecture. The grant is from the Company of Actuaries Charitable Trust.


Membership of the Society is now open for the year 2022/23. If you join now, your membership will be valid up to 1 October 2023. If you are able to pay more than the standard subscription, any additional amount paid will be treated as a donation, for which the Society will be most grateful.

Click Membership to find out more - save by taking out a 5-year subscription (which will cover the period up to 1 October 2027). There is a reduced rate for ATM, MA and U3A members and also those who live at a distance and do not wish to attend meetings. Institutional membership is also available, for example covering all teachers in a school or college.

We have a Members Page on the website, accessible only to members. Minutes of the AGM and Committee meetings and possibly other documents of interest will be posted here. The most recent document is Minutes of Committee meeting 16/02/22. To access, sign in and go to Members Page.


The LivMS Bursary Fund (charity no. 1156909) offers bursaries - more information on the Joyce Hatton Memorial Bursaries page. The next deadline is 30 September 2022. We expect to award bursaries of between 50 and 300 (in exceptional circumstances, up to 500), up to a total value of 1500. If funds permit, we will consider late applications up to 31 October.
