Representatives from the APS divisions, forums, topical groups and geographical sections gathered at APS Headquarters in College Park, Maryland in January for the annual Unit Convocation. The event featured a morning session on APS information services and unit budgets, in addition to tips on improving newsletter publication, increasing unit membership, improving unit-sponsored meetings, and a lunchtime demonstration of the Society's electronic journals. There were also reports on activities from each unit and afternoon discussions on planning for the upcoming APS Centenary Celebration in 1999 and getting the physics community involved in the political process.
