Divisions and Sections
Each of the Societies host subsets of people in groups that share similar interests and often careers. In the American Society of Agronomy, these groups are called "communities." In the Soil Science Society of America and the Crop Science Society of America theses groups are called "divisions". You do not have to be a professional to join one of these, in fact student participation in Divisions and Communities is highly encouraged. For students, it can be a chance to find out more information on a specific field to see if it sparks your interest, it can also be a networking opportunity to find a graduate advisor in your intended field of study or what kind of jobs are offered in the fields that interest you.
