About Mid-Atlantic Section

We are proud to announce that the American Physical Society has established a new section that will serve the District of Columbia, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. The new Mid-Atlantic Section (M-AS) is a unit of the APS with the goal to strengthen the physics community in its region and to aid APS in its mission to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics at the regional level.

Why Join the Mid-Atlantic Section?

Your membership will support annual M-AS meetings, which will be inexpensive and emphasize student participation. Additionally, Section members will receive a newsletter that will highlight exciting new results and news from our region to keep the community connected. Please help to spread the word about the Mid-Atlantic Section of the APS to your colleagues.
