Description of the webinar content
APECS ran its first online town hall meeting today, with two sessions timed to be accessible to APECS members around the world. The meeting covered some highlights of current activities, including the upcoming online conference and polar week, a recap of the last Antarctica Day. Several ways for APECS members to get more involved were highlighted, including upcoming APECS workshops and webinars, the soon-to-be-announced Mentor awards, and a number of opportunities to volunteer with APECS. Finally, a few areas of growth for APECS were showcased, including ongoing work on Alpine Cryosphere and Third Pole resources within APECS, two new National Committees, and the World Summit planned for 2018. As always, it was stressed that APECS is a volunteer-based organization and that any ideas and/or interested members are welcome. There were a total of approximately 50 participants in the two sessions.
