IMA Presidents from 1964 to current.
In 1990 the Institute was incorporated by Royal Charter and was subsequently granted the right to award Chartered Mathematician status.
On the 5 November 2008 Privy Council granted the right to amend the Charter and Byelaws so that a register of Chartered Mathematics Teachers be established by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, to be operated together with or without other mathematics societies to award the designation of Chartered Mathematics Teacher to applicants who are suitably qualified.
Privy Council approved amendments to the Royal Charter and its Byelaws, with effect from 1 July 2015, which include the extension Corporate Membership of the Institute to Associate, Affiliate and Student Members and the creation of two categories of Corporate Members: Advanced Members and General Members.
