In August 2014, I attended AAPG’s 34th annual Leadership Days in Snowbird, Utah. I attended because of the passion that I have for volunteering with AAPG and the incentive that there is a lot to learn from an event such as this, where individuals from various committees throughout the world are present. Such knowledge and concepts can then be brought back to the Latin American region for ever growing achievement. I can personally tell you that my expectations were exceeded; Leadership Days truly was a remarkable experience.
