Members & Advocacy Working Group

An organization can only be as great as the members that make it up. One of the reasons IAPS has seen so much growth and success over the years is the high caliber of the physics students that each play an important part in the organization. IAPS is a federation of member societies spread throughout the world and we will continue to spread until we reach every physics student, everywhere. At the core of IAPS is a singular goal, to foster international partnerships and camaraderie with physics students across the world. Implicit in that charge is that we reach physics students around the world. That is where the Membership Working Group comes in.

As a member of the Member & Advocacy Working Group, you will work with the Membership and Advocacy Manager to form and foster new relationships with physics students from all over the globe. We work with the existing Territorial and Local Committees, to ensure good communication with IAPS and that all our Member Committees are in good health, with a strong foundation. When a Committee needs help with ensuring continuity of their committee or just needs advice, the Members Working Group is there to help.

Our goal this year is increase engagement with IAPS members and foster a sense belonging to the IAPS community.  Here we have a subgroup opportunities:

– Regional Engagement (new!)
– Science Clubs (new!)
– Physics4academia
– Physics4peace
– Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
– Mental Well-being
– Music Group
– Alumni Matters (new!)
– More possibilities!

If you want to communicate and meet students from all over the world, develop experience building supportive communities, and strengthening your professional development skills, please consider joining the Working Group. Reach out to the Membership & Advocacy Manager at
