Make Things Happen, Engage in APS
Volunteer positions can range in scope from short, focused projects for a couple of months to longer positions with a maximum of a three-year term, which is typically renewable. Volunteers may also attend and participate in their specific meetings held each year at the APS Annual Meeting.
Committees provide a mechanism by which the diverse views of plant pathologists can be considered. You can select from subject-matter-focused committees or general policy committees. Board and offices are working on a variety of activies from outreach and education to public policy.
Check out the committee webpage or the APS leadership listing.
If you want to start with a committee position, volunteer by contacting the chair of the committee that interests you, or if you will be at the annual meeting, attend the committee meeting in which you are interested.
