Encouraging new members to join AAPG is one of my favorite ways to participate in our society. The Resolutions Committee is reviewing two local societies for affiliation with AAPG this year. The Geological Society of Brunei Darussalam and Sociedad Colombiana de Geologia (Colombian Geological Society) have both applied for affiliation. Both societies have robust memberships. We will be voting on their inclusion at the HoD meeting in April. I’m very happy to be welcoming qualified new members from around the globe!
