Candidate for Treasurer-Elect | Ryan Yarrington

I am very honored to once again be nominated for a position on the HGS Executive Board of Directors for the 2019-2020 year. The Houston Geological Society, with its vast history in the Houston area has been integral in providing continuing education opportunities within the Geoscience Industry as well as cultivating  a strong sense of community both locally and across the globe.  After 7 years of membership and 7 years of volunteering for the HGS in the International Explorationists Group, I would love to expand my involvement in a Society that has made such a significant impact on my life professionally and personally. There are many things that I can bring to the table with a larger role in the HGS. Some of those attributes include flexibility, adaptability to new situations, integrity, networking skills, an ability to analyze situations objectively, quality communication, a willingness to work with others, a positive disposition, and of course, my fantastic sense of humor! Between those characteristics and the guidance that I receive from other seasoned members of the Board I feel that I could be a strong member of the team. If I am elected Treasurer-Elect, I would aim to channel my skills into supporting the various committees that I would oversee and to encourage them with their continued growth in the Society. As a part of the HGS Board as a whole, I look forward to the possibility of being involved in the ongoing success and expansion of the largest local Geoscience society in the country. I hope that I can count on your vote!
