Hall of Fame Nominations




Fall 2017 meeting will take place on September 30 at Estrella Mountain Community College. For a map and directions click here.

We will be using the EMCC maker-space – it will be a great facility for the meeting. We will have a tour and, since it is a Maker Space, we will make stuff (there is a $5 additional cost for this and it is added to this meetings fees). We are going to order pizza and salads for lunch. There is a $5 lunch purchase option on the membership page that you can add to your purchase when you pay for the meeting and membership.

Check out the Fall 2017 meeting page under "future meetings" for a full agenda.

We are going to bring in pizza and salad for lunch. This will cost $5 per person, and you can purchase that in advnace on the membership page along with your membership and meeting fee here.

We will be holding Officer Elections. As we started last year, nominations will handled through the website:  Where you will find descriptions of the duties for each office. Then use the email link at the top of the page to the nomination committee to let them know which office(s) you are interested in. A member of the nomination committee will nominate you at the Fall meeting. Serving as an officer is a great way to serve the Physics teacher community and did I mention the perks are fantastic! So give it some thought – 98% of officers say the experience has been one of the most rewarding of their career. (Okay, you’re right, I just made up that statistic. But speaking personally, I have enjoyed working with some great people)

We are doing some new things here on the web-page and how we handle nominations for officers and award recipients. All nominations will take place via email BEFORE the upcoming meetings when the voting will take place. We will send out emails reminding people of this and remind people via Facebook as well. Please consider running for officer positions, or think of those that might be good officers.

We, the executive board of AzAAPT, have decided that the way dues and fees were being charged was not the best way for an organization like AzAAPT. So, we have made some changes. It encourages membership and it encourages inviting friends and colleagues and students. It no longer requires you to attend a meeting to become a member. Click over to the Membership / Meeting Fee page to see the structure and to sign up for the Spring 2016 meeting.
