Here’s what you can look forward to this week and what you can do to participate in IAPSS events and aid efforts.
IAPSS General Assembly – Last week to submit candidacies!
The IAPSS General Assembly and Elections will take place online Saturday, April 30, 2022, at 13:00 CEST (7:00 EDT).
There are six positions available on the Executive Committee. Each position is in charge of its own department. All positions are important to keep IAPSS operational and moving forward. Just as important are the regional chair positions, as people leading the regions are responsible for promoting IAPSS on their continent in unique cultural backgrounds. We also have three available positions on the Advisory Board, which are recommended for those who have already spent some time at IAPSS as a volunteer.
The deadline for candidacies is April 24, at 23:59 CEST (15:00 EDT).

Archive of Student Experiences and Help Resources in Ukraine
IAPSS is gathering information from students who live in Ukraine. Our page will be continuously updated and will serve as the archive of student experiences living in wartime. There are student testimonies, donation links, and a Petition to Educational Institutions To Accept Ukrainian Students that any organization can sign.
