Once more we are at the start of a new fiscal year for AAPG -- and once again it arrives after an extremely busy year for AAPG.
We started out the year building a new Business Plan and restructuring AAPG’s committees.
The new Business Plan was built from the recently revised strategic plan with a focus on member services worldwide. For the first time in AAPG’s history all parts of AAPG were asked to develop a basic business plan -- basically stating their purpose, current reality, goals and action items to obtain those goals.
Every committee and each Section and Region was asked to go through this process. As a result we have an extremely comprehensive Business Plan.
We are in the final stages of editing and restructuring the document to make the format consistent and readable -- and then it will be posted on the Web.
We also restructured the Corporate Advisory Committee into a “board” format, whereby we present new ideas for development.
The new Corporate Advisory Board is led by Bobby Ryan of Chevron, and it now plans a mid-year meeting plus teleconference to review and develop new programs.
