House of Delegates Approves Compromise on Sponsorship

American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

Full membership in AAPG will now require only one sponsor, following a lengthy and impassioned debate among the members of the AAPG House of Delegates meeting at the Annual Convention and Exhibition (ACE) in Houston.

The body approved an amendment to the AAPG Bylaws that will lower the current requirement of three sponsors.

The amendment was a compromise and substitute for another proposed amendment that would have removed the sponsorship requirement entirely.

Of the 207 HoD members in attendance, 116 voted to approve the substitute amendment to lower the sponsorship requirement to one, with 76 who voted against it.

After the approval of the new amendment, 158 voted to enact it, with 34 against.
