The U.S. shale oil and gas production surge and the resulting shift of the United States from a major importer to an exporter of oil and natural gas are well known, but there is disagreement about what this means for U.S. and global energy security

One thing I always have found amazing within the House of Delegates is that every year there always are significant ideas, suggestions and issues that arise among the membership. With eight committees staffed with ‘new eyes’ every year or so, identifying items to be addressed by the House should be expected.

I am honored to be nominated as a candidate for secretary/editor of the AAPG House of Delegates. The HoD plays a very important role in determining the direction of the AAPG, both in seeking out and vetting potential AAPG members, and in discussing and ultimately deciding the future of the organization through changing the Bylaws. As Secretary of the House of Delegates, I will strive to do the best job possible in keeping accurate records of the important work of the House.

Much of my career has been in Wyoming, and I have represented the Wyoming Geological Association, having also served as WGA president. About two years ago I finished a term as president of the Rocky Mountain Section, culminating in leading an RMS meeting in Cheyenne, Wyo. in 2011, as the Niobrara play was starting to heat up.

In that I split my time between the United States and Asia, and that I teach classes globally, I believe I can bring a unique perspective to the position of chair-elect, and then chair. I understand from first-hand experience the rewards and challenges of the U.S. Sections, and also the international Regions. Although occasionally, the interests and needs of the U.S. Sections and international Regions conflict, all of us want to see the AAPG become the world’s premier scientific association. If elected, I can leverage my role as a globe-trotting bon vivant to promote that vision and help it become a reality.

I would like to express my appreciation to the Nomination and Election Committee for asking me to run for chair-elect of the House of Delegates this year. I consider it an honor to be nominated. AAPG has made significant contributions to my professional growth in the oil and gas industry, and has fostered my passion for the science of geology during my career. I believe the main reason that AAPG continues to inspire me is the House of Delegates keeps the organization relevant by providing ongoing dynamic feedback and leadership from our membership. I cannot imagine AAPG without the HoD, and if elected I will work diligently to ensure that the House continues to function as an integral part of AAPG.
