Martin George

Formerly the Language Committee

Function: To facilitate translation among different languages, in particular between English and other languages; to investigate the possibilities of translation at conferences; to publish relevant articles in languages other than English, and to consider other language-related issues. Additionally, this committee will work to foster international relationships among planetarians around the world, particularly with the aim of increasing IPS awareness in non-English-speaking countries and in areas of the world having low IPS membership. This Committee works closely with other relevant committees, in particular the Emerging Communities and Membership committees, as well as the Finance Committee, which administers the Star Partners' Program.
