Two special events have been planned for all Young Professionals attending this year’s AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition in Long Beach, Calif. – both intended to specifically help YPs maximize their ACE experience:
♦ The first event is the YP Meet & Greet, which begins Sunday, April 22, at 2 p.m.
The Meet & Greet is a great networking opportunity and one of your first chances to connect with other young and experienced professionals during the convention. Participants meet and are grouped with experienced AAPG attendees, who will serve as guides to newcomers to the convention experience.
You are then encouraged to attend both the opening session and Icebreaker as a group, where your new mentor will introduce you to other AAPG members and their colleagues.
♦ The second event is the YP Networking Reception, which begins at 7:30 p.m. Sunday (right after the Icebreaker) and is yet another opportunity to enjoy food, refreshments and the chance to continue your networking potential.
This YP-only event will be held at the Long Beach Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery, and there you’ll have the chance to meet members of the hosting YP Committee – and learn about all of the goals and initiatives that the committee has been tackling for the last few years.
