Distinguished Lecture Program

About the Program

Welcome to the evolution of the Distinguished Lecture program and its new digital format.

Because today’s audiences expect instantaneous access to and delivery of information, the program has undergone a revolutionary transformation aimed at extending the program’s accessibility, audience and reach.

Presentations of the lectures are now recorded as videos and can be streamed or downloaded from the AAPG website. For individual viewings/listening, all presentations will be available 24-7. Questions that you may have after viewing the presentation can be sent to [email protected], with the intent of a quick response from the lecturer.

For groups and classrooms, webinars provide the opportunity for a “virtual lecture experience.” By contacting [email protected] we can schedule the lecturer of your choice to be present for your group to host an online chat or Q-and-A session with audience members after the online talk (this feature is subject to DL availability).
