Why IPPS - Christine E.H. Coker, Ph.D., GRP
I became a member of IPPS as a new faculty member. I was instantly embraced by a community of knowledgeable and inspirational plant people! I have had the opportunity to be involved in the Southern Region in a variety of ways from committee service, to speaking, to helping host our regional meeting and international tour. These experiences have expanded to include opportunities in other regions including New Zealand and Australia. Now, I not only count Southern Region members as my friends, but now have friends across the world! Membership in IPPS has afforded me many rewarding opportunities and friendships, and I look forward to many more years of involvement.
