Younger Members Committee

The Younger Members Committee (YMC) purpose is to facilitate communication between younger members of the society and the established ASP membership. At the annual meeting the committee sponsors a working lunch open to all ASP younger members (a younger ASP member is an undergraduate student, a graduate student or a post-doctoral researcher). Past workshops topics have included lectures on writing journals articles, application for jobs, and the differences between working in academic, government, and industry. If you have any questions please e-mail me, Brian Murphy at

ASP Young Members Interest Group on Facebook, coming soon.
