Our US Central Chapter fall meeting is almost here and I want to let you know that the meeting agenda is now posted on the web site for your perusal. In addition we’ve put the abstracts for each of the presentations online so you can get a feel for the focus and content of each talk that you will be hearing. You will see that we indeed have a great line up of presentations that should promote some interesting discussion during the Q&A times and across the coffee breaks, lunch, and the after-meeting social.
If you’ve missed the earlier messages the theme of this meeting is “The Future of Geomatics in the Petroleum Industry” and it is being held on Wednesday, September 25, at Anadarko Petroleum in The Woodlands. If you have not yet registered for this event then please do so right away. If you have already registered may I encourage you to reach out to a few friends and colleagues and invite one or more of them to come to the meeting with you? This promises to be a great meeting and they’ll be glad they agreed to come and appreciative that you asked and encouraged!
One additional note of interest to everyone. In light of the recent numeric growth and geographic expansion of the APSG the organizational hierarchy of the APSG is being re-examined by STAC. Please read their proposed recommendations here. These recommendations will be explained and time provided for discussion during the meeting so please take a few minutes to look them over and, if desired, be prepared to discuss your thoughts and suggestions at the fall meeting. Keep in mind these are only proposed recommendations at this time. If you will not be able to attend the fall meeting your comments are still valued and appreciated and may be emailed to the APSG Webmaster (firstname.lastname@example.org) for distribution to STAC. We appreciate your input!
Still trying to decide whether or not to attend the meeting? Go to the APSG website and check out the agenda and abstracts, and then make the right move and sign up to attend. We want to be sure we have enough snacks and lunch for everyone, so your timely registration will really help us there. You will see from the agenda that we’ll also be making every effort to have the meeting wrapped up around 4 pm so we can all enjoy a leisurely stroll along the Woodlands Waterway to Goose’s Acre for a fun hour or two of networking and relaxing before heading home for the evening. You won’t want to miss out.
Hope to see you at the fall meeting!
