*Convenor*: The convenor of the committee is responsible for the running of
the committee (including attendance at the annual APPC conference),
communication with members, organising and overseeing projects, liaising
with the AAP executive, and serves as the postgraduate representative to
the AAP (requiring attendance at the AAP conference). A convenor should be
a postgraduate philosophy student who can dedicate approximately 2 hours
per week to running the committee and participating in projects, and who is
motivated to work on projects that can benefit the entire postgraduate
philosophy community of Australasia. The chair is elected for a 1 year term

serve an additional term as an ordinary member to assist the next convenor.

a good chair.
*Ordinary Members*: Ordinary members are postgraduate philosophy students

committee's goals and participating in the committee's discussions on
various issues. Members of the committee should be able to dedicate at
least 2 hours a fortnight to the committee and are expected to actively
participate in order to maintain their membership. The projects that
members work on are quite diverse and have included: producing the
postgraduate student guide, running the tender process for the annual APPC
conference, developing surveys, developing ties with other professional

Serving in either capacity is a great opportunity to help benefit the
