The Professional Divisions Committee shall be responsible for the proper conduct of the Professional Divisions and Technical Groups. The committee shall cooperate with individuals and groups interested in the formation of Divisions and Technical Groups, assisting them in the preparation of statements and a petition, and in other organizational and operating procedures (see also R18.1, R18.3, R18.6, R18.7.2).

At least one appointed member of the committee shall be on the Board of Directors. The chair of the committee shall become an ex officio member of the Executive Committee of each Division and Group. The chair of the Program Committee, or a representative designated by the chair, shall serve as an ex officio member.
