APS Constitution, Article II
The divisions, topical groups, forums, and sections play a vital role in the American Physical Society. Units aid the Society in fulfilling its mission to “advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics.” As part of a Society committed to member participation, the units provide opportunities for members to interact with colleagues with similar interests and to keep abreast of new developments in their specialized fields.
APS has a number of statements on education, ethics and values, human rights, internal policy, international affairs, and national policy.
