AAPG Delegates Houston Geological Society
Each year some number of AAPG HGS area delegates to the AAPG House of Delegates see their terms expire come June 30. New delegates must be elected and alternates will also voted upon to fill vacancies as they occur. Currently, 6 delegate terms will expire on June 30, 2018. Due to membership changes, 29 delegates plus alternates will be elected to replace those whose terms expire. These delegates and alternates will serve from July 1, 2017, through June 30, 2020. HGS elects other delegates (and alternates) on staggered three-year terms. There are 3 delegates whose terms expire in 2018 and an additional 30 delegates whose terms expire in 2019.
Steve Brachman will serve as the Houston-area AAPG HOD group chairman for the fiscal year 2017-2020. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Steve (email@example.com) or any other member of the delegation listed here. These delegates are your elected voice to AAPG and a link between the national AAPG and local geological societies like the HGS, so let your opinions be known.
