APECS Council Updates
Council members are involved in many activities: they organize activities for early career researchers around the world; they shape the future of APECS together with the Executive Committee and the Directorate by helping to plan the directions, goals and objectives of our organization; they serve as representative of an international community; and they help to keep our members updated on new results in polar research! Because they are active leaders, they often get opportunities to represent APECS at important conferences and meetings and are recognized by senior leaders in their field.
