YP Meet & Greet
Date: Sunday, 23 October
Location: Level 2, Open Area Outside Gold Room
This event, sponsored by the AAPG Young Professionals Committee, serves to bridge the gap between the students, young professionals and experienced professionals. At the Meet and Greet, students and recent graduates are paired with young or experienced professionals to gain an insider’s perspective into the petroleum industry and share direction on the meeting itself (what to expect, technical sessions, and other recommendations). Mentors and paired protégés will attend the Opening Session together, and are encouraged to then attend the Icebreaker Reception together to introduce their new acquaintances to colleagues. A Network Challenge was introduced at the ACE 2011 and will be held at the ICE 2011. Participating students must obtain signatures from select exhibitors and select professional AAPG members. Three cash prizes will be awarded via random drawing of entries.
Date: Monday, 24 October
Location: Meliá Milano Hotel
Fee: Included with conference registration
All registered students and faculty are invited to attend the Student Reception for food, fun and networking. Meet AAPG leaders and officers as well as executives from the sponsoring organization.
In addition to these industry connections, you can also meet up with fellow students – all in a fun and relaxing environment. And most importantly, this is where the announcement and presentation of the first, second and third place winners of the Student Poster Sessions will be held.
