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. HGS elects other delegates (and alternates) on staggered three-year terms.  

Steve Brachman will serve as the Houston-area AAPG HOD group chairman for the fiscal year 2019-2020. Rosemary Laidacker will serve as Foreman of the Houston area AAPG HoD.If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Steve (sbrachman@wapitienergy.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.
