The AAPG House of Delegates voted overwhelmingly to raise the ceiling for AAPG dues and handled other agenda matters in the shortest House meeting in recent memory at the Dallas Annual Meeting.

Chairman George Eynon paced the 187 delegates present through an agenda that included three bylaws proposals plus the measure to raise the ceiling for dues for Active and Associate members to $125 annually. The present Active dues of $72 per year was nearing the ceiling of $75.

The ceiling for Emeritus was raised from $37.50 to $62.50, and the ceiling for Student members remains at $10 per year. The dues ceiling was last raised by the House in 1982.

The dues action was approved with no debate and one vote dissenting.

Other bylaws actions included:
