The Purpose of the Society: to serve as a professional organization of clinicians, technicians, researchers, students, and other professionals. The American Balance Society is comprised of members who have an interest in vestibular and balance sciences and the assessment, diagnosis, and management of patients with vertigo, dizziness and impaired balance.

The Mission of the Society: to serve as a multi-disciplinary organization that strives not only to empower health care professionals to make evidenced-based, patient-centered decisions in the pursuit of improved clinical care for patients with dizziness, balance, and movement disorders, but to extend and expand our basic science knowledge of vestibular anatomy and physiology.

The Vision of the Society: to foster the dissemination of knowledge and exchange of information among professionals interested in both clinical care of patients with dizziness and imbalance and basic and clinical vestibular/balance researchers.
