Together we have experienced many difficult challenges this past year; economic, health, social and ecological catastrophes around the globe. We have learned so much, and as a result we’ve adapted and modified our ways of doing business and implemented new innovations to ensure we successfully (and safely) meet the needs of our membership.
Our goal remains the same – to advance the science of geology, to promote technology and foster research, and to tell people why these advances are important to them and their lives – and we do this to support you in your professional development and growth. Because together, with nearly 24,000 AAPG members in 121 countries, we are working to find and deliver the energy that improves lives across the globe.
In past years, members received individual recognition by means of a certificate mailed on the anniversary of their membership (awarded in five-year increments); quietly celebrating their commitment to AAPG. This year, AAPG decided instead to publicly recognize our members for their loyalty, support and dedication via the EXPLORER.
(Certificates of membership are accessible on the website via the Member Portal and we encourage each member to log in to their Member Profile and print a certificate, which we hope will be framed and displayed with pride.)
Thus far, the EXPLORER has recognized members celebrating the following membership milestones: 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65 and 70 years of membership. This issue celebrates those who joined in 2000 and 2005, and are being recognized for their 15-years and 20-years anniversary of membership. We salute your dedication and continued commitment to AAPG.
Our members are our greatest strength, and we thank you for all your contributions to the science, the industry and the Association.
Congratulations to you all – and thank you for your support!
