APIC’s Member Services Committee proposed a series of membership updates to better reflect today’s IPC landscape. The changes include expanding student membership and renaming existing member types. APIC’s Board of Directors approved the recommendations this summer. We are hosting an informational webinar on October 26 to walk through the proposed changes and answer any questions. APIC members will be asked to vote on the changes during the annual business meeting on November 2. All members are encouraged to attend the Oct. 26 webinar and Nov. 2 business meeting however only eligible members can vote (Full/Active members, New IP members, and Lifetime members).
