Several YPs have expressed interest in participating with the Visiting Geoscientist Program (VGP).
While typically reserved for more experienced AAPG members, the VGP is now open for YPs to apply!
The committee created a new title called “Associate VG” which is a position specific to YPs with less than 10 years’ experience interested in participating. They will be given access to the full VGP resources available to normal VGs.
It was recognized that YPs have a wealth of knowledge to contribute, whether it's in emerging technologies, alternative energy, or fundamental geoscience skills.
The value of applying as a VG is you’ll have your biography, availability, and talk summary listed publicly on the AAPG website and be able to schedule visits with assistance from the AAPG coordinators. This is a great opportunity for YPs who are looking to boost their network and increase their exposure within the AAPG community.
A full description of the VGP and its benefits can be found here: https://www.aapg.org/career/trainin...scientists
The application form with instructions is attached to this post. Good luck!
