APS welcomes participation from those in academia, industry, and/or government laboratories to serve as Site Visit Group (SVG) members. As an SVG member, you are helping to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment within the physics community. To prepare for your SVG role, please review the responsibilities and expectations before, during, and after the site visit.
SVG members need to allocate two nights of time for the site visit itself. If a member is unable to attend the entire site visit, including the meetings the night before, they cannot serve as a member of the group.
Members of a site visit team serve as representatives for the APS during the visit and should conduct themselves in a professional manner congruent to this role. No other business with the department should be conducted in association with the visit (e.g., SVG members should not give a presentation or meet with colleagues on this trip).
A typical schedule for a site visit includes:

APS appreciates your efforts as an SVG member to improve the climate in physics and contribute to APS's mission of increasing diversity, fostering inclusion, and engaging the next generation of physicists.
