The first Washington College Mathematics Conference (WCMC) was held in 1969. Affectionately known as the "Spring Math Conference" it is hosted in a unique collaborative way. Responsibility for conference planning is passed from college to college each year with no rule for who hosts when nor where.

WAMATYC, which did not form until 1986, does not host the conference, but does support the conference by sponsoring speakers and other activities. Also, our membership/business meetings are held during this conference.
