Early career researchers involved in APECS gain skills in leadership, communication, organization, and international cooperation, and the strength of the volunteer efforts are the driving force behind the organization. The APECS leadership is comprised of early career researchers that are interested in and committed to furthering the activities and the future directions of the organization. Project initiation and management, whether web-based or in-person events, are carried out by a number of member-initiated working groups and committees made up of both members and mentors.
