The mathematics community has a large number of national professional organizations that students can join to help stay current with issues and trends in the field, network, and to take part in professional development. Most organizations provide student memberships at a discount which come with subscriptions to journals and newsletters. They also usually host conferences and meetings at both the national and regional level.
In addition to these general organizations, most sub-disciplines have specialized organizations. Visit the research page for your field of interest for more information about some of the organizations you may also consider joining.
