The 2021 AIP WA Branch Committee held its first meeting on Friday 22th January and have already begun to plan some events for 2021, including 3 Sundowners, the Women in Physics Lecture, the Student Conference and a social event.

We highly value our WA physics community and are most keen to hear of any ideas you may have. We would welcome any contribution that promote and/or strengthen physics in WA.
