YPs Busy in Long Beach

American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

AAPG’s Young Professionals initiative took another big step forward with three specific activities at this year’s AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition in Long Beach, Calif.

First, the now-annual YP Meet and Greet event was a big success, attracting more than 150 students, young professionals and experienced mentors.

The large group of people gathered on Sunday afternoon, just preceding the convention’s official start, to discuss careers in the oil and gas industry, the benefits of continued membership in AAPG and to enjoy the refreshments.

After an hour of mixing and mingling at the event – sponsored by Noble Energy, which was represented by Tiffany Hopkins ­– everyone headed off to the Imperial Barrel Awards awards ceremony and the opening session.

Later that Sunday evening a sizeable crowd of young professionals gathered at the nearby Rock Bottom Brewery for the first-ever YP Networking Reception, where attendees enjoyed good food, local beers and the chance to network with other young professionals attending the ACE.

The “YP-only” event gave YPs another chance to share experiences with each other about working in the industry and being a part of AAPG.

Finally, on Monday night Jon Allen, Pacific Section YP lead, announced the winners of the cash prizes for the Networking Challenge, a competition where students and young professionals flexed their networking muscle by engaging with AAPG leaders by collecting signatures around the Exhibition Hall during Sunday’s Icebreaker.

Overall the YP activities at ACE were an overwhelming success – and we look forward to an even bigger and better selection of events at next year’s ACE in Pittsburgh.

Stay tuned!
