Constitution of the International Ballistics Society
The Constitution of the International Ballistics Society is our governing document. The development of the constitution was based heavily on experience with the International Ballistics Committee Charter, the Aeroballistic Range Association Constitution, and the Hypervelocity Impact Society Constitution. The consitution was signed and officiallly became effective on 25 January 2010.
During the 25th International Symposium on Ballistics held in Beijing during May 2010, the Board of Directors were able to hold a ceremonial signing of the constitution. For the official signing, each member signed and dated a copy that was returned to the secretary. The ceremonial signing allowed us to obtain original documents with all signatures on each copy.
The society's goal is to promote the international ballistics community through international conferences as well as through professional development.
