Trustees to Meet in Arizona

The AAPG Foundation Trustee Associates will hold its 35th annual meeting Oct. 28-Nov. 1 at the Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The Trustee Associates are a select group of contributors organized for the purpose of supporting the AAPG Foundation, providing counsel and leadership to its Trustees, lending support to its fundraising efforts and guiding the scientific and educational agenda, which it overwrites.

Today there are more than 275 Trustee Associates who play a stellar role in the development of the AAPG Foundation’s financial resources, thereby dramatically accelerating its ability to support scientific educational programs. The group supports more than 30 funds and programs.


The AAPG Foundation and Oklahoma State University Geoscience and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Consortium was formed to create, promote and provide access to digital peer-reviewed GIS products carried out through OSU’s Boone Pickens School of Geology, the Geography Department and the AAPG GIS Publications Committee.

These products have direct applications to the search for and development of petroleum and energy-related mineral resources, environmental geology and related economic issues.

Established in 2008 through funding by AAPG member T. Boone Pickens, the Boone Pickens Digital Geology Fund accelerates and sustains AAPG Datapages’ Geographic Information Systems publishing program through the AAPGF-OSU Geoscience GIS Consortium.

The Foundation Trustees and staff, as always, thank Mr. Pickens for his continued, generous support of the program.

Additional contributions are accepted for this initiative.


Simply put, the AAPG Foundation exists to support the geosciences.

It funds many educational opportunities, public outreach and various grants and scholarships at the university level.

It recognizes outstanding achievement in the geosciences and assists in the dissemination of new technological information as well as the preservation of important studies, data and research.

The AAPG Foundation touches thousands of people each year – and those involved are proud of its many programs and initiatives. Your contributions make a difference. Give today to the AAPG Foundation, P.O. Box 979, Tulsa, OK 74101 – or contribute online.
