  • The improvement and extension of the publications of the Society
  • The improvement and extension of the library and visual aids of the Society for the benefit of the members of the Society and the many publics served by the Society
  • The fostering of communication and interchange among the members of the Society, thus enhancing members' skills and abilities
  • Assistance in providing accommodation for the Society's education and public outreach undertakings
