An organizational meeting was held at the Georgia Mathematics Conference at Rock Eagle on Friday, October 21st 2005. Twenty-three mathematics teacher educators were present and decided to form an association affiliated with the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators .The group named a steering committee of Greg Chamblee,(Georgia Southern), Linda Crawford (Augusta State), Brad Findell (University of Georgia), Cindy Henning (Columbus State), and Lynn Stallings (chair) and charged this steering committee with the following tasks:
finalize the constitution initially drafted by Cindy Henning (Columbus State), Clara Nosegbe Okoka (Georgia State), Lynn Stallings (Kennesaw State), and Shonda Lemons-Smith (Georgia State);
assemble a slate of officers for the first election; and
conduct the election.
The Steering Committee reviewed and revised the Constitution and Bylaws. The membership was asked to approve them by an electronic vote. By December 7th, 2005, the membership voted to approve both the Constitution and Bylaws (Constitution and Bylaws.doc).

Kitty Fouche (Columbus State) volunteered to chair the elections committee. An electronic vote was conducted and the first of officers was elected:
