This year the Credentials Committee comprised:
- David Dolph, Chair, Canada Region
- Margaret Anne C. Rogers,

- Karen Glaser, Gulf Coast Section
- Rusty Gilbert, Pacific Section
At the April 22, 2012 Annual House of Delegates meeting in Long Beach, our Committee was onsite to welcome and check credentials of fellow Delegates attending the House meeting. Our Committee submitted to the Chair of the House an attested roll of Delegates, Alternate Delegates, and Appointed Alternate Delegates who are qualified to vote on business during the meeting and, through a motion placed before the House, facilitated the last minute seating of Delegates who may have had uncertainties related to their credentials when compared to AAPG’s Delegate credentials list.
This year there were 218 Delegates “elected” to the House and the number of Delegates actually seated for the meeting was 188, representing 86% attendance. Of note is the 73% attendance by AAPG Region Delegates, the highest overall percentage of eligible Region Delegates yet.
Please see the following tables on the next page for details by Region and Section.
As Chair of the Credentials Committee I would like to personally thank Larry, Steven, Karen, Rusty and Margaret for their early morning attendance and all of their help!
