Great Programming From Committees

Volunteer Members Make the APS World Go Round


APS committees perform the inner workings of the societies’ activities and are manned by volunteer members.  All committees support our mission and are integral to a successful APS.  Positions are open to our traditional members as well as our commercial members.   Many new initiatives are brought forth each year through committee work and the APS is continuously searching to broaden its reach-to members and the public.
