The American Physical Society is a membership organization. The Presidential line is elected by the entire membership and consists of four persons, who rotate through one-year terms as Vice President, President-Elect, President and Past President.
The President presides over the Council, which has the ultimate responsibility for the actions of the Society. The Society is dependent on the assistance of hundreds of volunteers, who serve on its Committees and provide the leadership for it Divisions, Topical Groups, Forums, and Sections. Day-to-day operations of the Society are overseen by three Operating Officers: the Executive Officer, the Treasurer/Publisher, and the Editor in Chief.
