Could you be AIP’s next Honorary National Secretary?

1 Mar 2023 1:15 PM | Anonymous

If you’re a great organiser and would like to increase your visibility and build your network in physics, consider taking on the role of Honorary Secretary for the AIP.

The Honorary Secretary is supported by our Operations Manager who oversees much of the membership enquiries and daily tasks of the AIP.

The Honorary National Secretary is a company Director of the AIP, contributing to strategic decisions and helping to coordinate the day-to-day activities of the institute.

Tasks include responding to emails, organising executive and branch chair meetings including the annual Council meeting and AGM, governance reporting, and liaising with stakeholders such as cognate societies, STA, AAS, IUPAP and AAPPS.

After six years of dedicated service, our current Honorary National Secretary, Associate Professor Kirrily Rule, is stepping down. So, we are looking for someone to step into this organisational and communication role within the AIP.

“This role is extremely rewarding and a fantastic way to grow your network of physicists from across the country and around the world,” says Kirrily. 

“It gives high visibility to the person undertaking these activities and the Secretary has their finger on the pulse of physics within Australia.”

Whilst the Secretary role does not have a constitutionally limited tenure, it is expected that most secretaries will perform this role for around 2-3 years.

If you’re interested in finding out more, contact Kirrily at today.
