In a competitive world of traditional and electronic journals I will do my best to identify the best editorial board members who are energetic and open to new challenges and will maintain the integrity and high quality of the AMS journals. My personal research interests are in both mathematics and physics and I am dedicated to the support of women and minorities.

Your support and comments are very welcome:

Dear colleagues,

Thank you very much for your support! As a result, I have been elected and will do my best serving at this committee.

Sincerely, Sergei Suslov
