The Program Committee (PC) is primarily responsible for planning meetings of the Division and sessions sponsored by the Division at national meetings of the Society. The PC selects session chairs and other meeting officers required for presiding at technical meetings of the Division and at its special sessions of contributed papers at national meetings of the Society. The PC, as needed, calls on other members of the Division to serve as long-range planning coordinators for particular meetings or special sessions. The Chair of the PC, through his/her National/Topical Subcommittee (N/TS) Chair, is responsible for liaison with the National Committee of the Society.
