All members are encouraged to participate in committee meetings, held during the FED Summer Meeting and the Congress, and to pursue their interests by organizing symposia and other divisional activities.
Both the Society and the Division provide an infrastructure which makes it simple to organize symposia, forums or panel discussions. Members who are organizing their first symposium or forum will usually work with an experienced organizer.
The Fluids Engineering Division is subdivided into six Technical Committees:
Many Divisional activities are jointly sponsored by these committees. Each has a chair, a vice-chair, a secretary, an honors representative, as well as other officers selected every two years from the membership. The officers help consolidate plans for conferences, symposia, and provide the principal interface with the Society for most of the membership.
