In May we had a great AAPG Congressional Visits Day, when AAPG members over two-and-a-half days met with a host of government officials, lawmakers and their staff.

And now, planning is under way for the next Geosciences CVD (geoCVD), set for Sept. 21-22.

Participants faced a packed schedule during the May geoCVD, but at that time we were able to communicate a strong message about:

  • The importance of oil and natural gas to jobs and the economy.
  • How development of natural resources on public lands is essential to U.S. energy security.
  • The vital role that federal oil and natural gas R&D plays in finding and producing these resources.
  • Training the next-generation work force.

September will be your next opportunity to join members from AAPG and other earth science societies in telling Congress how important the geosciences are in everyday life. It’s a message most senators and representatives need to hear.

Space for this event is limited, socontact David Curtiss (202-684-8225;) to reserve your spot. Please note that AAPG does not provide funding for members to participate in geoCVD.

Much is happening in Washington, D.C., that affects petroleum geologists. Join us in September for geoCVD 2010 and make your voice heard.
