The AAPG Foundation has established a new fund to help meet the film’s production costs.

A new AAPG Foundation fund has been established in support of a full-length documentary that is being made to help alert and inform the world of future trends in energy use and production.

“The Bridge: Our Fossil Path to Alternative Energy” is a production that is being shot at locations around the world, featuring AAPG President and Trustee Associate Scott Tinker.

The Foundation’s “Bridge Fund” also will support a Web site on the same subject.

Contributions to the “Bridge Fund” – or any AAPG Foundation fund – are tax-deductible as specified under U.S. tax laws.

For more information about the funds or to make a contribution contact Foundation Manager Rebecca Griffin at (918) 560-2644, or go online to the Foundation Web site.


The Trustee Associates will be busy at the AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition, set June 7-10 in Denver. Upcoming TA events at the Denver annual meeting include:

  • Members of the Corporation and Board of Trustees are scheduled to meet at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, June 8.
  • Foundation Chairmen’s Reception will be held at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9.

On the road again: The Trustee Associate luncheons not only spread the word about Foundation activities but also are helping to bring in more TA members.

Recent guests at the Ft. Worth and Denver luncheons who accepted invitations to join the group include:

  • William A. Monroe, Ft. Worth.
  • John D. Humphrey, Golden, Colo.

They bring the Trustee Associates membership to 268.
