    Does anyone know of any websites that have a list of professional organizations within the engineering and science industry? Particularly, I'm looking for an organization related to physics. I know of the major ones in mathematics (MAA, AMS, etc.) as well as computer science (ACS, etc.), but I don't know any organizations in physics, chemistry, engineering, etc..

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    How about the American Physical Society - www.aps.org ? Or the American Institute of Physics - http://www.aip.org/.

    Then there are numerous technical socities like

    IEEE - www.ieee.org - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

    AIAA - www.aiaa.org - American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics

    ASME - www.asme.org - American Society of Mechanical Engineers

    ASCE - www.asce.org - American Society of Civil Engineers

    SAE - www.sae.org - Society of Automotive Engineers (which interestingly keeps the AMS specifications)

    ASM International - www.asminternational.org - for materials

    TMS - www.tms.org - The Metallurgical Society - for metals, mining, refining, and processing.

    ANS - www.ans.org - The American Nuclear Society

    ASTM - www.astm.org - American Society for Testing and Materials

    I belong to several of them.

    Physics: American Physical Society (APS), American Nuclear Society (ANS), American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM)

    Engineering has the IEEE and along with a plethora of societies for different focuses within engineering.

    Chem has the American Chemical Society (ACS)- only one I know of.

    Astronuc listed some of them, but there are more (AREA, AASHTO, NAPA, NCAT, AISC, ACI, ...).
