Officer candidates for the 2017-18 AAPG Executive Committee have been announced, and videos that allow the Membership to become more familiar with them, their careers and their thoughts will be available online soon.

This year's slate includes contests for three offices. The person elected president-elect will serve in that capacity for one year and will then be AAPG president for 2018-19. The terms for the vice president-Sections and secretary posts are 2017-19.

The candidates are:

President-Elect

  • Denise Cox, Storm Energy, Panama City, Fla.
  • John Kaldi, professor, Australian School of Petroleum, University of Adelaide, Adelaide, Australia.

Vice President-Regions

  • David Cook, (retired) ExxonMobil, Maldon, England.
  • Piotr Krzywiec, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland.

Secretary

  • Meredith Faber, Noble Energy, Houston.
  • Laura Mauro Johnson, Anschutz Exploration Corp., Golden, Colo..

As with last year's election process, all candidates will be presented to the AAPG membership via two brief videos:

  • One video, a "mini-bio" featuring personal photos, provides a quick look at the candidate's professional career as well as their involvement with AAPG.
  • The second video features a Q&A format, allowing the candidates a chance to share their thoughts, priorities and visions for AAPG.

The videos will be published on the AAPG website in mid-December.

Also, printed material will be inserted in the January EXPLORER that provides biographical information for all candidates, as well as their responses to the statement, "Why I accepted the invitation to be a candidate for an AAPG office."

(Associate and student members are not eligible to vote — but to upgrade your membership status, contact your delegate or an AAPG member services representative.) Ballots will be mailed in the spring.
