House on the Internet
by Sandi Barber
House of Delegates now has an Internet forum to facilitate discussion
and information flow between Delegates and the House committees.
You can access it from the AAPG Web site (under Divisions,
Section, Societies, House section on the homepage). Any
visitor is able to browse the forum but only Delegates and past
House chairmen are able to post messages.
user ID is requested in order to post a message on the forum.
Each Delegate has been sent the user ID first by e-mail and
then by post. At this time, all Delegates' registrations have
been set to receive no e-mail notification of new postings.
If you have any problems with posting messages or if you would
like e-mail notification of all or of those new messages to
threaded discussions to which you have posted, please notify
intent of the forum is two-fold. The primary purpose is to better
enable the Delegates and the House committees to discuss issues
and to conduct business throughout the year. The forum uses
threaded discussions, allowing Delegates to see all comments
posted to a particular subject within the past two months. House
leadership and committee chairs will be actively posting developments
on the forum, so frequent visits are recommended.
second intent is to provide AAPG members a better understanding
of what issues the House is working on. Most members have little
understanding of what the House does or how it works. By providing
a glimpse into our efforts, this site will educate our membership
and hopefully recruit more active participation in all AAPG
activities. It will update those members already interested
in House activities.
please visit the forum
at your earliest convenience and often afterwards. This can
rapidly develop into an important means of communicating quickly
and efficiently with our globally distributed body. The House
leadership will be using it to communicate important information,
issues and developments.
