ISPSO Members Day 2023

Members' Day takes place the day before the Symposium. Its task is to sharpen our conceptualization of the field and address ongoing ISPSO matters. It focuses on both the state of the enterprise (i.e. our field) and the state of our organization. This year, all ISPSO members are invited to take part in Members' Day with the AGM and the 40th Birthday Celebrations (RSVP is essential if you have not already registered for the AM 2023 Meeting and Symposium).
