The Biophysical Society Committees are essential to the implementation of the Society's stated purpose to encourage development and dissemination of knowledge in biophysics. Committee members and chairs in all but two of the Society's fourteen committees serve three-year terms, renewable once. All new and continuing committee appointments are approved by Council when it meets each year at the Annual Meeting. Committee members must be current Society members at the time of their appointment.

Society members wishing to be more involved in Society activities are encouraged to submit a volunteer form and indicate their interest in one or more of the following committees:  early careers, education, international relations, membership, minority affairs, professional opportunities for women, public affairs, or publications. Volunteer forms submitted by October 1, 2017, will be considered for appointment in 2018.
