Committees

The American Physical Society is a volunteer-driven organization. Since 1899, physicists have contributed their time and resources to running the APS in cooperation with a minimal full-time staff. Volunteers are the backbone of the Society. They form the character and direct the Society's progress and development. The purpose of this Guide is to provide useful information to the many volunteers who serve on APS committees. All APS committees operate on a calendar year basis and committee terms run from January 1 through December 31. Any questions not covered in this Guide can be addressed to the committee chair, senior staff liaison, or the committee administrator.
