AAPG's Membership Enhancement and Development Drive activity is heating up as it moves into the final three months of the program.

Applications continue to come in from all AAPG Sections and Regions; at press time a total of 160 applications have been received from 102 recruiters.

Now we are beginning to roll! Ask a friend to join. It's important for our profession and our industry.

Also, we have a new leader for the Grand Prize trip to Barcelona.

Although new applications have been received from every Section and Region, the Asia/Pacific Region is tied for the lead in the regional race with the Africa Region, each having 22 applications.

The Gulf Coast Section leads the Section race with 47 applications. The Rocky Mountain Section is second
with 11.

Sectional and Regional Breakdowns are:

  • Gulf Coast — 47
  • Eastern — 4
  • Rocky Mountain — 11
  • Mid-Continent — 5
  • Pacific — 5
  • Southwest — 8
  • Africa — 22
  • Asia/Pacific — 22
  • Europe — 16
  • Canada — 7
  • Latin America — 1
  • Middle East — 12

An equal goal of the membership drive is to communicate the benefits of AAPG membership. These many benefits offered by AAPG have been highlighted in the Membership Value Pyramid (focus of Rick Fritz's "Director's Corner" in the November EXPLORER).

Using the pyramid makes it easy to discuss with potential members the benefits available to AAPG members and portrays the building blocks needed to support a strong professional community. It's downloadable on www.aapg.org.

Remember, the top recruiter in each Section and Region will be awarded 250 AAPG dollars. Of course all members who recruit "get stuff," including a desk flag for everyone who recruits one new member and special recognition lapel pins for those who recruit three or more.

The top overall recruiter will receive a travel voucher, four nights lodging and registration for the 2003 AAPG international meeting in Barcelona, Spain.

The new leader is Kamil Idris of Talisman Energy in Calgary, Canada.

So, when you're talking to new recruits, and you're not quite certain as to how best to communicate to them the many benefits of AAPG membership, consider the Pyramid. It contains all the important benefits, which will make the recruit ask you, "How can I join?"

It might be the easiest way in which you have ever won a prize.
