DF promotes interaction among Divisions to discuss challenges facing the discipline of plant pathology at the regional level, and by facilitating meetings among divisions or with other relevant groups. DF seeks to attract and engage students and early career professionals, and to increase membership in APS through divisional activities and leadership opportunities.
