Free Membership with two Physical Societies

When you join SPS as an undergraduate, you get free membership in two of ten other physics societies... all of which are members of the American Institute of Physics (AIP). AIP serves this federation of physical science societies in a common mission to promote physics and allied fields. 

Since you can do this for up to three years, you might consider joining different societies each year and trying out acoustics, crystallography, rheology, geophysics, or optics just to see what those societies have to offer. In any case, SPS is eager for you to see the breadth of physics through these societies, so indulge!
