Council Structure to be Reviewed by Newly Established Task Force

At its April meeting, the APS Executive Board and Council voted to establish a task force on the structure and responsibilities of the APS Council, an action deemed necessary "in light of new demands upon the Society caused by its increasing range of activities and the many additional units that have been formed," the resolution stated. Chaired by Ernest Henley (University of Washington), the task force is charged with reviewing the structure of the Council with respect to representation and overall size, and with examining the distribution of responsibilities between the Council, Executive Board, and various bylaw committees. On the basis of the review, the task force will make recommendations that might improve the value and effectiveness of Council meetings and APS governance as a whole. A final report is scheduled for presentation at the May 1999 Council meeting.
