Register Now for the 2018 AAPS Summer Networking Series


Summer might be flying by for many of you. We encourage you to take a pause from your busy schedules and join us for the AAPS Summer Networking Series. The AAPS Summer Networking Series is a great opportunity to step away from your office, visit an interesting place on campus, and get to know your fellow AAPS members over lunch. This year we will be touring the Nitobe Gardens, Museum of Anthropology, and Vancouver Art Gallery.
