     Invitation to Attend the APSG Fall 2013 Meeting

    Register Online TODAY!

     
    APSG Fall 2013 Meeting
    September 6, 2013
     
                   
    Dear Members & Guests,
                                                   
    As many of you know our fall meeting is coming up in just three weeks.  I know many of you are wrapping up those summer activities, the kids are now back in school, and you’re finally settling down to set your fall event schedule.  So, with that in mind I want to encourage you to go the APSG web site TODAY and register for the our APSG30 US Central Chapter Fall Meeting, being held on Wednesday, September 25, at Anadarko Petroleum in The Woodlands.
     
    The theme of this meeting is “The Future of Geomatics in the Petroleum Industry” and to that end we have a great set of talks lined up that I think will catch your interest and really stir some conversation among our membership.  We also want to take this opportunity to briefly share what is going on with the various APSG chapters and the new APSG organizational hierarchy being discussed and developed for official approval by member vote early next year.  This will be a significant organizational change so we’ve even included time for some Q&A.

     

    Whether you are a new, recent, or veteran member of APSG I encourage you to come on up to The Woodlands for a great day of learning, discussion, networking, and fun.  To top it off the venue is beautiful, the parking is FREE, and the light breakfast, snacks, drinks, and lunch during the meeting are all part of your $35 annual membership fee that you’ve already paid (or will pay upon arrival at the meeting).  Of course the meeting will also be followed by a nice vendor-sponsored social at the Goose’s Acre, a very short and pleasant walk down the waterway from the Anadarko Tower (so you can remain conveniently parked in the Anadarko garage).

     

    We know the meeting lands during the SEG convention and sure apologize if that will keep you away this time, but hope you may be able to break away from the convention for part of that day or perhaps the entire day to join us in The Woodlands.  I really think it will be worth your time and effort!

     

    In case you are wondering, the official meeting agenda will be posted on the website within the next few days so you can check out the presentations and the schedule for the day and can plan your attendance accordingly. In the meantime go ahead and register and start making plans to join us on September 25.  I’m anticipating a great and intriguing meeting and look forward to sharing the day with you! 

                           

    Warmest regards,

    August 27, 2013
     
    Dear Members & Guests,
                           

     

    Our annual Houston chapter APSG fall meeting is just around the corner and we are coming up on the deadline for you to submit a presentation title and abstract for that great talk you would like to deliver to your APSG friends, peers, and colleagues.   If you thought you missed the opportunity to send along your presentation idea, it’s not too late.  But please get it in this week!

     

    Our fall meeting, titled "The Future of Geomatics in the Petroleum Industry", will be held on Wednesday, September 25, 2013, at the Anadarko Petroleum Tower in The Woodlands.  The goal of this meeting is to discuss the latest geomatics technologies and disciplines and the growing capabilities and potential of geomatics to further advance and insure success across the entire oil and gas industry.

     

    In preparation for a great meeting we are looking for a few more speakers with a passion for geomatics and an exciting, noteworthy presentation to deliver on any of the following topics as they relate to the petroleum industry:

     

    • The role of geomatics in the oil & gas industry from exploration to exploitation to distribution
    • New and innovative geomatics technology; what's here and now, what's next?
    • Where and how is geomatics adding value and having a positive influence on the oil & gas industry?
    • Success stories and examples of benefits and opportunities afforded by the application of geomatics technology
    • Career opportunities in the field of geomatics - what's available and what's coming?

     

    Please submit your presentation title and abstract to Jim Cain, at jim.cain@cain.barnes.com, for consideration. All submissions need to be received by September 4, 2013.

     

     

    If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the meeting please contact me at your earliest opportunity.

    Dave Byrne, the APSG Chair, announces the Call for US Central Chapter Vice Chair Nominations.
     
    Call for US Central Chapter Vice Chair Nominations
    August 06, 2013
     
    Dear Members & Guests,

    With the fall meeting coming up soon it’s time to start thinking about the annual changing of the guard.  Jackie Portsmouth will be moving up at the fall meeting from Vice Chair to APSG Chair and we will elect a new Vice Chair at that time.  This is your opportunity to nominate worthy individuals that the Nominations Committee should consider and advance as the top two candidates for us all to vote on at the meeting.

    The Vice Chair serves for one year and is elected by majority vote of the APSG membership present at the fall meeting.  At the end of the one-year term the Vice Chair automatically advances to the position of APSG Chair as prescribed by the APSG Articles of Association.

    Candidates for Vice Chair should:
    • Be active members of the US Central Chapter 
    • Have a proven track record in professional, industry, or  community leadership
    • Have employer support 
    • Be committed to two contiguous years of dedicated service,  first year as Vice Chair followed by second year as Chair

    All candidate suggestions should be submitted to Jim Cain, at jim.cain@cain-barnes.com, by August 21 to provide time for the committee to evaluate the submissions and narrow the list down to two candidates.  Please provide the nominee’s name and contact information.  The two finalist candidates will be announced via email and at the APSG website prior to the meeting and a vote will then take place at the fall meeting.

    Thank you for your suggestions and active involvement in this nomination process!!


    Warmest Regards,

    Dave Byrne

    APSG Fall 2013 Meeting
    August 06, 2013
     
    Dear Members & Guests,

    Though we’re still deep in the hot, dog days of summer, fall is coming and that means our annual APSG fall meeting is just around the corner!  At the last meeting we looked at our geodetic roots and how they led to and influenced our current geodetic reality.  Now it’s time to look ahead and discuss the latest geomatics technologies and disciplines and the growing capabilities and potential of geomatics to further advance and insure success across the entire oil and gas industry.

    Our fall meeting, titled “The Future of Geomatics in the Petroleum Industry”, will be held on Wednesday, September 25, 2013, at Anadarko Petroleum in The Woodlands.  We intentionally staged this meeting during the SEG convention in hope that many of our out-of-town members will be in Houston for the show and can break away for one day to attend this APSG fall meeting.

    In preparation for a great meeting we are looking for six or seven speakers with a passion for geomatics and an exciting, noteworthy presentation to deliver on any of the following topics as they relate to the petroleum industry:
    • The role of geomatics in the oil & gas industry from exploration to exploitation to distribution
    • New and innovative geomatics technology; what’s here and now, what’s next?
    • Where and how is geomatics adding value and having a positive influence on the oil & gas industry?
    • Success stories and examples of benefits and opportunities afforded by the application of geomatics technology
    • Career opportunities in the field of geomatics – what’s available and what’s coming?

    Please submit your presentation title and abstract to Jim Cain, at jim.cain@cain-barnes.com, for consideration.  All submissions need to be received by September 1, 2013.

    If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the meeting please contact me at your earliest opportunity.  I’m anticipating a great meeting and look forward to sharing an exciting line up of presentations with you soon!
