Professional Societies

What are these, and why would you care?
Professional societies/organizations provide a way to stay current in a discipline and to network with your colleagues. They are often the publishers of journals and books in the field, as well hosting conferences where members present research best practices. They are often expensive to join, but may have discounted rates for students -- and may offer resources like career guidance, job listings, or even scholarships.
