A Memo From Mike:
As many of you know the mid year or spring reports for AAPG Student Chapters are due in May or June of each year. I encourage each Chapter to send in their report to remain eligible for benefits such as the L. Austin Weeks Grant, and others.
You may send a Chapter report to me by email, mail, or fax. I look forward to reviewing your Chapters activities.
I have commented on what is needed in the report in past issues of the Student Outlook, so please take a look if you have questions or send me an email.
I was recently given a publication from the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, called the “Petroleum Pros” many Chapters also received a copy of this publication. For those of you who did not receive an actual copy, the IOGCC has provided me with a digital copy that you may download here:
I believe this is an excellent publication that should be very informative to the Student Chapters, and especially students interested in Petroleum Geology.
Heritage of the Petroleum Geologist:
I also recently sent out a copy of the publication “Heritage of the Petroleum Geologist” published by the AAPG Division of Professional Affairs to all of the Student Chapters. I would like to issue a special thank you to DPA President Mike Party and AAPG Divisions Manager Norma Newby for supplying copies to the Student Chapters.
I read this book and was impressed by the stories and knowledge passed down by the various industry leaders in this interview type format, and felt it could be of use to the AAPG Student Chapters. Enjoy.
If you have not or do not soon receive your Chapters copy please let me know, I have a limited number of books left.
Rocky Mountain Rendezvous:
I was recently informed that the date for the 2005 Rocky Mountain Rendezvous job fair has been set. The job fair will be held October 23rd -24th 2005. There will also probably be an optional field trip October 21. For more details please visit: http://aapg.gg.uwyo.edu/RockyMtnRendezvous/home.html
or continue to monitor the AAPG Student Chapter Website.
Lastly I leave you with the following advice. Stay tuned to AAPG during the summer months and get to one of these Job Fairs or all of them if possible. I met some students last year that made it to all of them. These Expo and job fair events are a real help for many Students.
Also for those students that will be attending the AAPG Annual meeting in Calgary, I look forward to seeing you and talking with you in the General Store or at the Student Reception. The meeting is shaping up to be an excellent event for students.
