An organisation such as IAPS which is spread out over 66 countries, with more than 65 000 members and the potential for millions more, would be lost without a dedicated team of people to keep them in the loop!
The PR Working Group will be responsible for creating content for the monthly newsletter, flyers, merchandise store, videos, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. Volunteers can also be in charge of one of the social media channels we have, following its activity closely and interacting with our followers and fans! If you like writing science related articles/news, have an artistic bone or are “addicted” to Social Media then this part is for you!
Another part of the Working Group is making sure that such information will reach said members. This distribution part is an important side of the Working Group as while IAPS is a vibrant organisation of physics students, we are only reaching a small fraction of our member base. This will also involve working with our large Student Ambassador Program. If you have a large network or would like to create more contacts, this part of the job is for you!
The final part of the Working Group responsibilities can be work related to jIAPS, the annual journal of IAPS. This will be along the lines of encouraging people to apply for the article competition and helping the jIAPS Editor, who will also be part of this working group!
