Election Results

The results are in for the AAPG officer election for the president-elect, vice president – sections, treasurer and editor. Thank you for your voting participation!

We extend our congratulations to the new officers as they prepare for their leadership roles.

Claudia Hackbarth has been voted president-elect of AAPG for the 2022–23 term and will serve as the Association’s president in 2023–24.

Also elected to the incoming AAPG Executive Committee were:

  • Vice President–Sections (2022–24) – Rebecca Dodge, TexasView, Midland
  • Treasurer (2022–24) – J. Alexandra “Ali” Sloan, Centennial Resource Development, Denver
  • Editor (2022–25) – Matthew J. Pranter, Univ. of Oklahoma, Norman

Both Dodge and Sloan will serve two-year terms, Pranter will serve three-years and, like Hackbarth, all will begin their service July 1, serving on an Executive Committee headed by Steven Goolsby, who assumes the AAPG presidency on that date.

All will be joining continuing EC members Elvira Pureza Gomez Hernandez, who continues as vice president-Regions, and Jonathan Allen continues as secretary.

Also on the committee will be Justin Vandenbrink as chair of the AAPG House of Delegates.

Voting results show that slightly more than 19 percent of AAPG’s 10,637 eligible voters cast ballots in this year’s election, with all but 43 votes being cast online.

Thank you for your dedication to AAPG.

Helpful Hints

  • Are there tax issues with graduated dues?

    No. The graduated dues system has been thoroughly vetted by AAPG’s legal counsel in consultation with our Washington not-for-profit attorney. Those experts who have researched the issue agree that the graduated dues structure will not lead to any tax problems, including inurement issues, with the IRS. Other societies have received the same advice from their legal counsel.
