The Northwest Section of the APS was officially founded in 1998 and now numbers over 1100 members and continues to grow. Its purpose is to facilitate the exchange of physics information and discussion among members living in the rather large area of the Pacific Northwest (primarily Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming & Alaska). The Section places emphasis on including students and physicists who work in education, research and in industry.
Speaker Program Launch: The Northwest Section Executive Committee is launching a new program to connect scientists working in the Section with students and faculty at institutions in the Section. Institutions may identify a Speaker and request the Section provide financial support to bring that Speaker to the institution to present their work and interact with students and faculty. Download the Speaker Program description for more information and application details.
