Tired of standing in long lines at the convention registration area?
In preparing for the AAPG Annual Convention at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, don't forget that there's an easy way to beat the annual "registration rush."
And while you're at it, don't forget 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.
Those who sign-up in advance of their arrival at the convention center can simply take their confirmation slip to one of the pre-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 3 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 decrease the amount of time spent in 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.
