Region/Section Presidents

AAPG’s six U.S. Sections and six international Regions are self-governing entities of the Association.

Each AAPG member is assigned to one of these according to your mailing address, the country you live in or by individual choice. Election of House of Delegates and Advisory Council representatives is based on Active member population either in an affiliated society or in a Section/Region.

If your mailing address is other than the area where you wish to be affiliated, information can be entered in your AAPG member record to reflect your area of choice.

If you have questions or wish to make changes to your record, contact Donna Riggs.

Printed here, for your reference and use, is a listing of Section/Region presidents.
