APS is working with SocialOffset

APS has partnered with SocialOffset.org to offer meeting attendees the opportunity to contribute to local organizations in Memphis that make a difference in people’s lives. Aligning with the value statement of APS, we want to positively impact the cities in which we hold our meetings. As such, we want to believe that when Plant Health 2024 is over, we will be leaving Memphis better than we found it. To do this, APS has worked with SocialOffset to select three vetted charities that align with the values of the society.
