Ed Rothman, 2013-14 Nomination and Election Committee Chair
I enjoyed the Houston ACE meeting. The technical sessions and
social events were excellent. The Houston Geological Society
and AAPG need to be commended for the great convention. The
HoD also had a successful meeting in Houston. There was much
debate over the sponsorship issue, but I think it was resolved in
a fair and equitable manner.
I’d like to thank my committee members for their work in
selecting the candidates to run for HoD office and their
assistance in administering the election at the meeting. The
committee nominated four very qualified delegates to run for
I’m sure you all know that Robert C. Shoup from the Asia-Pacific
Region was elected chair-elect and Thomas C. Anderson from
Rocky Mountain section was elected secretary/editor. I’d like
to express my and this committee’s
congratulations to both of them.
It was an enjoyable year working with
the HoD officers, Chair Larry Wickstrom,
Secretary/Editor Dan Billman and Chair-Elect
Dave Dolph. I know the HoD will
be in good hands when Dave takes over as the chair. Larry put
together a good team of committee chairs and it was a pleasure
working with them. I’m sure that if Dave contacts me about
being on a committee, I’ll be ready to serve.
Finally, I’d like to thank Regina Gill and Linda Burris at the Tulsa
headquarters for all the help and support that they gave to the
Nomination and Election Committee. They do a wonderful job
assisting the HoD.
Nomination and Election Committee members: Ed Rothman, chair; Maren Blair, vice-chair; Rafal Kudrewicz, Patrick
McCarthy, Wan Yang, Nancy Fix, Mark Gallagher, Clint Moore, Barry Goldstein and Rob Diedrich.
