Honors and Awards Committee

The HoD Honors and Awards Committee consists of 10 members, which encompass the many Regions and Sections of AAPG from all over the globe. These members have served in several different leadership positions within AAPG and their local societies. Their commitment to bring forth the highest honors to those who have paved the way for our great organization has been exceptional. Without this committee, appointed by Larry Wickstrom and supported by AAPG’s Regina Gill and Jenifer Gilbert, the role of chair would have been unsuccessful. (See committee list, below).
