Committee on Informing the Public

The membership of the Committee on Informing the Public consists of nine (9) persons selected by the Committee on Committees and appointed by the President-Elect to staggered three-year terms. The President-Elect appoints the Chair from among the members. The committee provides oversight of the Society's public outreach and media relations activities while also seeking mechanisms to encourage or facilitate public outreach by APS members. Committee members also suggest future activities, approaches, and outreach opportunities, as well as possible external funding sources. The committee recommends to the Council the allocation of financial resources among membership and APS initiated activities at least once a year.
