APS Committee Nominations

Deadline: Friday, August 21, 2020

Selecting excellent leadership is essential to the continued health of any organization. We are now accepting nominations for new members of APS Committees. To be considered for a 2021 appointment, the candidate’s nomination must be submitted by August 21, 2020.

Submit a Nomination

As a volunteer-driven organization, we appreciate your nomination of dedicated individuals who will help direct the Society's progress and development. All committee terms run from January 1 through December 31.


Both the nominator and nominee(s) must be current APS members. Nominators are welcome to submit multiple prospects. All submissions will be reviewed by the APS Committee on Committees, who will draw up a slate of candidates for the President-Elect to appoint.


Please include one or two paragraphs outlining your nominee's career highlights and a few sentences on why they are qualified to serve on the respective committee. This information is very valuable in the process of selecting candidates. You are welcome to send additional materials (such as a CV) to APS Governance (governance@aps.org).

Submit nominations through the online form, or email your nominee’s name and supporting documents to APS Governance.

Attracting and serving a diverse and inclusive membership, respectful of each other's unique contributions, is a primary goal for APS. Nominations of women, members of underrepresented minority groups, students, and early career physicists are especially encouraged. Please also consider candidates from outside the United States, and from the industrial and private sectors.

If you have any questions, please contact APS Corporate Secretary Jeanette Russo (governance@aps.org).

Nominees and award and office holders are expected to meet standards of professional conduct and integrity as described in the APS Ethics Guidelines. Violations of these standards may disqualify people from consideration or lead to revocation of honors or removal from office.
