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!
