Sections serve as conversation groups and promote work in specific interest areas. Some sections sponsor panels and events at the AFS annual meeting. They also convene at in-person business meetings, in online platforms, and chat throughout the year. Many sections promote good work with prizes recognizing excellence in their areas of interest, and some produce journals or blogs.
