Description from ASPB's Constitution and ByLaws:
- Geographical, disciplinary, or affinity group sections of the Society may be formed upon petition by at least three percent of the Society members. After approval of the petition by the executive committee, the section may organize under probationary status for three years, after which the executive committee will approve or disapprove permanent status, or extend the probationary status for an additional three years. If a section fails to be approved for permanent status after the second probation, it shall be disbanded.
- Sections of the Society have full autonomy in their organization and activities, provided that these do not conflict with the provisions of this Constitution and Bylaws. Publications of the sections (print, film, or electronic), which can be construed as publications of the Society as a whole, must be approved by the publications committee.
- Any section which fails to maintain a minimum number of active members of the Society equal to one percent of the total Society membership shall have its representation on the executive committee terminated.
