Divisions and interest groups elect their own officers and establish their own committees and/or task forces. Each has a budget for carrying out programs and services based on the number of its members. Divisions and interest groups may have their own bylaws, in conformance with the bylaws of the Academy, and are subject to Academy policies. The president-elect of the Academy serves as the formal contact on the Board of Governors for the divisions and interest groups. Divisions and interest groups offer a range of services, including educational sessions and social events at the annual meeting, newsletters, Web pages, professional development opportunities, and recognition programs .
