The Public Issues Committee began in February 2006 and its mission was to develop positions and take action on America's stance regarding war and peace, and the ethical questions at the frontiers of science, and family care, developing these ideas to influence the 2006 and 2008 National Elections.
During the committee's tenure, PIC wrote positions that were ratified by the NYSEC Board and have become the Society's official stance on these issues.
