The creation of an AAPG Africa Region Student Chapter at the University of Western Cape, UWC, South Africa was welcomed by the Region as the 46th addition to the AAPG Africa Region student chapter count following the successful engagement and support from 2014 IBA student participants and Faculty Advisor towards the chapter’s set-up. Having initial student membership numbers of 63 at inauguration in 2014, the AAPG UWC student chapter has since been delivering on student programs and events.
Benefiting from the AAPG Publications Program, book gifts, VGP visits & IBA participation the UWC student chapter was privileged to welcome a VG lecture from AAPG President, Mr. Paul Britt on 31st September 2016 at the geoscience department of the university in Cape Town, South Africa.
AAPG appreciates the support of KB Trivedi, M. Opuwari and Dirk Frei for their contributions to the success of the VG lecture.
Reserve your VG lecture for 2016 & 2017
