Letter from Barbara Gregg
I have been very honored to serve on the board of APS for the last several years. I’ve also had a lot of fun and met so many wonderful people in these years. I plan to retire from those active roles at the end of May although I’ll still be active in APS. The current slate of officers for the next two years has vacancies that may be calling your name. Here is a chance for you to provide your skill and energy to an organization that supports something you believe in and that needs your support.
Who Should Join APS?
Don’t forget to renew your membership!
All APS memberships expire in May of each year, so now is the perfect time to renew. We’ll be starting up the meetings and monthly contests again this fall, and you don’t want to miss out! To renew your membership or join for the first time, visit our Join the APS page. You can submit your application online or print a copy and mail it in. We hope to see you all again this September!
Congratulations to the Winners of the 2018 Annual Contests!
