Mission Statement:

The main function of this section is to represent early career plant scientists within ASPB. We aim to accomplish this in three fundamental ways to achieve greater representation of early career voices to the ASPB governance:

  • Breaking down communication silos and formalizing established early career leadership within ASPB
  • Creating a mechanism for transparent dialogue between that leadership and the broader early career membership.
  • Combining the formal leadership and membership voice to create an Early Career Platform, a series of agenda items ASPB Early Career Representatives can vocalize and act upon across other ASPB’s committees, sections, and programs.

Overall, this section aims to generate a lasting synergy between members of the early career plant scientist community and the rest of ASPB.
