Learned Societies and Professional Associations

Academic and professional conferences are organized under the auspices of learned societies and professional associations. Here, members of the society present papers in an effort to advance the state of knowledge in a particular field of study. Joining a learned society is a great way to keep abreast of new developments in your field, to develop contacts, improve your qualifications, and to gain access to society publications.
