Beat the Rush and Save $ -- Register Now
Getting ready for Houston?
There’s an easy way to beat the annual “registration rush” and save yourself a lot of money at the same time.
And while you’re at it, there’s also an easy way to do something good for science and for AAPG: Help as a volunteer judge for the technical sessions.
The AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition will be held April 9-12 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. The meeting’s theme is “Perfecting the Search -- Delivering on Promises,” a dynamic focus that will be examined and defined by eight concurrent oral sessions and the largest number of forums ever slated for an AAPG meeting.
Even though the meeting is a month away, registering now can help both you and AAPG.
It helps you because registering online before the March 31 deadline will save AAPG Active members $70 in registration fees – and it will help you avoid the always-crowded onsite registration area.
Those who sign-up in advance of their arrival at the convention center can simply take their confirmation slip to one of the advance registration counters, scan the barcode and pick up your registration packets.
(And those who can’t register online before arriving in Houston can use the self-registering kiosks if paying by credit card.)
Remember, beginning April 5 you can register online for anything (including one-day registration and “exhibition only” passes) – a real time-saving feature.
Pre-registration helps AAPG and convention planners by providing a more accurate estimate of attendees for the four-day event – and by helping to eliminate the lines historically found at the registration area.
All registration information also can be found on page 89 of the convention announcement, or online at www.aapg.org/houston/registration.cfm.
Volunteer judges – always important and always needed at annual meetings –will get something more this year than the satisfaction of helping to ensure that excellent presentations and the best of AAPG’s science are honored. In addition to a token of appreciation, day-long refreshments will be available in the judges’ room.
Make this a win-win step for you and AAPG. Be a judge and sign-up now for savings in Houston.
