Sections exist to promote the common interest of Association members in specific areas of Latin American studies. They provide an opportunity for groups of LASA members who share a common interest in a particular thematic or regional field to organize meetings and coordinate communications under Association auspices. Sections provide the membership with outlets for research and opportunities for scholarship. Sections help encourage the study of political science. They have become a vital part of the Association by sponsoring panels at the Annual Meeting, producing informative newsletters, and recognizing scholarly achievements of their members.
They are a means of increasing communication and interaction among persons of similar interests within the framework of the larger organization. They help to broaden involvement in LASA, to democratize leadership selection in LASA activities, and to make LASA more participatory and responsive to constituencies. Through active Section membership individuals may receive recognition for accomplishments in their specialty and also ensure that their interests in their sub-field are recognized in the program at LASA Congresses and in other activities of the Association.
