Dear IAP Members
I wanted to update you on developments over the past number of weeks.
I can report that we have made progress with an application for the IAP to join the European Association for Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics (EACPT -https://www.eacpt.eu/who-we-are-2/), who responded very positively and who have said that they will put our application to their executive committee at their next meeting in April. We look forward in hope to the last blank space in Western Europe being filled in blue very soon (see: https://www.eacpt.eu/members/national-society-affiliated-to-eacpt/).
We have also applied for membership of the Federation of European Pharmacological Societies (EPHAR -http://www.ephar.org/home.html), who have also responded very positively to our initial enquiries.
We are currently working on the IAP website and expect to be able to update you on developments shortly.
In the meantime, we would very much appreciate your promoting the newly constituted IAP to those who you think would be interested in becoming members. We anticipate that the benefits will soon include membership of European federations and the opportunities for contact with European colleagues.
