APS Corporate Reform
A Message from APS President 2014 Malcolm Beasley
In response to new legal requirements and to the perceived need to strengthen our governance structure in order to increase excellence and to meet the challenges and opportunities of a world that is both “flat and fast”, the leadership of APS has undertaken the task of modernizing the way we govern ourselves. Many other scientific societies are undertaking similar reforms.
An ad hoc APS Committee on Corporate Reform (CCR) has been established that will recommend the needed changes. These changes will entail major modification of our Constitution and Bylaws. Such changes require the approval of the members of the society.
The purpose of this web page is to keep the membership of the APS well informed on the reasons for this reform, the process and timeline by which it will be accomplished and to permit our members to ask questions and/or make comments. As the reform process progresses, we will add additional material along with video updates.
