Member Benefit LogoAAPS has many opportunities for pharmaceutical scientists, ranging from educational offerings to development of leadership skills. One way to develop leadership skills is through volunteering, and AAPS offers numerous occasions for member to get involved in the functioning of the association. These include volunteering to serve on an AAPS committee, student chapter, focus group, or section and participating in the Visiting Scientist Program or at a mentoring event.

Every AAPS member is encouraged to share his or her insight, experience, and dedication to the industry by getting involved. Member volunteerism is what has carried AAPS through its first 25 years and will carry it through its future years. Think about giving back to your professional association.
