HPAC (formerly Houston Geological Auxillary) provides various social activities for spouses of members of the Houston Geological Society.
The Houston Geological Auxiliary (HGA) was formed in 1950 with the purpose of encouraging social relations among its members and to assist the Houston Geological Society in any manner it should request.
In the fall of 2008, HGA joined with our three other sister petroleum auxiliaries (Engineering, Land, and Geophysical) to form the Houston Petroleum Auxiliary Council (HPAC). Continuing with our past, our combined purpose continues to be social and service and assisting each group in any manner they might request. Geologists, please encourage your spouses to join HPAC, where they will have the opportunity to meet other spouses of Geologists, Geophysicists, Engineers, and Landmen. They will participate in informative and entertaining programs, delicious lunches, and welcoming fellowship.
There are several special interest groups : Bridge: Audrey Thompkins, 713-686-0005, Daisy Wood, 713-977-7319, or Phyllis Winborn 713-729-3732. Book Club: Phyllis Carter, 281-397-9888 or Martha Lou Broussard, 713-665-4428. HPAC Exploring Houston: Martha Lou Broussard, firstname.lastname@example.org or Linnie Edwards, 713-785-7115.
