At the Meet & Greet, students and recent graduates are paired with young
or experienced professionals to gain an insider’s perspective into the petroleum industry and share direction on the meeting itself (what to expect, technical sessions, and other recommendations).
Mentors and paired protégés will attend the Opening Ceremony together, and are encouraged to then attend the Icebreaker Reception together to introduce their new acquaintances to colleagues. A Network Challenge will be held at the
ICE 2012. Participating students must obtain signatures from select exhibitors
and select professional AAPG members. Cash prizes will be awarded via random drawing of entries. To participate in the YP Meet & Greet, indicate at time of registration.
