Get Involved

We always need more postdoc (and senior graduate student) volunteers to help organize events.  Please contact if you would be interested in joining.  Serving as a board member is likely to help for fellowship and faculty job applications, and provide an opportunity to grow your professional network.

If you are not on our email list please visit and join this google group  in order to receive notification of all our events.

If you notice that your department, division, or institute does not support the USPA please let them know if you find USPA events useful.  USPA funds are raised entirely by requests and fundraising efforts of our board members.

If your company would like to partner with the USPA please contact us directly at

All donations are tax-deductible.

If you would like to support the USPA via a donation please give here and use code NA042F in the “other” designation field (you may need to scroll down the window).Inline image 1
