Are you interested in becoming an APECS member and receiving APECS news? APECS membership is free and signing up only takes a few minutes.
As an APECS member you are automatically added to the APECS mailing list that we will be using for announcements and newsletter distribution.
Do you need to update any information in your APECS profile (email address, country, institutions etc.)? You do not need to set up a new account. You can simply click on the "Update your APECS Profile" link that you find at the bottom of each email we are sending out and follow the instructions in the form.
Unsubscribing from the APECS mailing list will automatically end your APECS membership. You can do this at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe from APECS” link at the bottom of each email we send out. At any time you can re-subscribe by registering again for APECS on this page.
To comply with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) in the European Union, where our APECS International Directorate Office is located, taking effect on 25 May 2018, we require you to accept our Data Use Policy as part of our membership registration form.
APECS will use the information you provide on our registration form to get in touch with you and to provide updates about its activities. Please note that our mailing list provider, MailChimp, allows us to track subscriber activity including whether or not you open the email, how many times, and which links in the email you click on. Collecting this information helps us understand the key interests of our members in order to make our activities, resources, and our newsletters and announcements as relevant as possible. APECS will only use this data in an anonymized form for general statistics about our membership and for planning the direction of our upcoming activities and projects.
The APECS Executive Committee is also working at the moment on a general data use policy for our APECS activities which will be published here this summer and announced to all of our members.
By registering for APECS membership, you agree that we may process your information in accordance to these terms and accept our data use policy.
APECS is strongly committed to protecting the data of our members so we see compliance with the new regulations in the EU, where our international office is based, as extremely important.
If you are interested in providing a small voluntary membership donation that will help support our activities making sure we can continue to shape the future of polar research, please go to Donation. Every small amount helps to ensure that APECS can continue providing all of its resources and programs as well as organise its activities around the world for all of our members!
Thank you for joining APECS and helping us shape the future of polar research!
