AAPG 2005 Convention in Calgary
The 2005 Annual Convention of the AAPG was a great success for all. The incredible technical program, outstanding social events and the Exhibit Hall offered delegates a host of outstanding opportunities.
With a final attendee count of 7799 this was the largest convention that AAPG has held since 1981 in San Francisco, we should all be proud. Field Trips and Short Courses were mostly full to over-subscribed and the social programs were wonderful.
I would like to thank the Organizing Committee for their outstanding efforts and for the time they contributed over the past two years that we have worked together. I would also like to thank the AAPG and CSPG staff for their work and the professional manner in which many obstacles were overcome. I would also like to thank the sponsors. Without the sponsors, the cost of the convention would be considerably higher. Finally, I would like to thank all of you who attended the convention -- we truly hope you enjoyed it as much as we did
