Join a National Committee
Do you want to get involved in APECS in your country? APECS has many different groups to get involved with, and for many people connecting with other young researchers in their own country is a first step to meeting new colleagues and getting involved. Some countries have well developed national APECS committees, some are just getting started - and others are just a mailing list of all the APECS members in that country. Check out the APECS National Committees.
