Professional Interest Councils


The professional interests of the Society are many and varied. Individual members may become members of and participate in the activities of any division they wish, of which no more than six (6) may have no annual dues associated with them. All divisions are grouped into five Professional Interest Councils, each reporting to a chairman who is a member of the Board of Directors. The responsibilities of these units are:

  • To provide a formal organizational structure to promote, encourage, and facilitate activities pertaining to their areas of interest;
  • To provide forums for discussion and exchange of information about problems and experiences;
  • To coordinate the professional interests of individual members and to speak on their behalf; and
  • To establish and maintain a liaison with other organizations concerned with these areas of interest.
