[APECS] April/May newsletter now available.

APECS Director

APECS has (as always) been busy and active thanks to our enthusiastic members - and I'm happy to be writing an introduction to another newsletter completely packed with news, features, photos, opportunities, events, jobs, career development, and networking possibilities! 

Recent highlights include a strong APECS presence at the recent Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) conference in Copenhagen, APECS contributions at a planning meeting for a potential International Polar Decade, and the resurgence of the Research Activities Committee with monthly focuses: April was for Atmospheric SciencesMay is Marine Biology, and June will be Social Sciences

There are so many great ways to get involved in APECS - so take a moment to read through the newsletter, put yourself out there, take advantage of these unique opportunities, and as always please contact us if you have any questions/comments/feedback/etc.
