We’re a volunteer-driven organization. We provide members with opportunities for professional growth and to create connections with peers with the same technical interests and for sharing collaboratively. Volunteering also allows students to get involved with new opportunities and develop technical, social, and academic skills that they may not learn in a classroom or lab environment.
You can get involved in many ways. As a society, we publish journals, organize conferences, and support local chapter and student activities globally—all overseen by volunteers. We have various councils and outreach programs also seeking volunteer participation.
