In a bid to work more efficiently and get more students in the region to be involved in IPSF, the IPSF African Regional Office is delighted to announce its inaugural subcommittee members for the year 2016-17. The subcommittee members were selected through a competitive application process.

The subcommittee members shall assist members of the Regional Working Group (RWG) in performing their duties. The RWG members shall chair their respective subcommittees.

Asked how he felt after getting the news that he had been selected in the Regional Media and Publications Subcommittee, Mr. Arnold Pinias had this to say:

As for me, I was excited and relived! It came at a time when my fellow Executive Committee from my local association (ZPSA, Zimbabwe) were shouting, ‘we got positions in subcommittees…,’ So, I had to rush and check my email if there was a yes or no, and then yeah, there was great news for me that I could say to my pals too.”
