A new ad hoc committee focused on AAPG governance has been formed by the Executive Committee in response to recent changes that are impacting the industry and AAPG membership.

The committee’s tasks include:

  • Reviewing AAPG governance and comparing it to other societies.
  • Determining best governance practices, and how they might best apply to AAPG.
  • Placing governance within the context of AAPG moving forward as a business and as an organization that serves our members and best supports our mission into our next century.
  • Making recommendations for potential changes and suggesting implementation of those ideas, as required.

The committee comprises three members each from the House of Delegates (HoD), the Advisory Council (AC) and the Executive Committee. They are:

  • House of Delegates – David Hawk, Laura Johnson and Ryan Lemiski.
  • EC – Richard Ball, Steve Brachman and John Kaldi.
  • AC – Lee Krystinik (chair), Pete MacKenzie and Robert Webster.

AAPG has made no major changes to its current governance for at least 50 years, despite transformational changes that have occurred throughout the industry and technological advances in communications and information transfer.

An interim report will be made to the EC, AC and HoD at the AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition in Denver, and again toward the end of the year.

All comments, inquiries and suggestions should be directed to Lee Krystinik.
