Vision Statement:

(published for president-elect candidates only)

I am honored to be considered for President-Elect of the Energy Mineral Division. EMD provides a valuable service to its members, AAPG members and the public at large through delivery of timely and important technical reports prepared by EMD commodity committee chairs and councilors as well as the AAPG publications it sponsors. In order to continue this valuable service I believe EMD will need to undertake two activities: First, work with AAPG to streamline the information delivery system primarily through an update of the EMD website and embracing social media; and second, encourage AAPG Young Professionals to become EMD members and become actively involved in EMD affairs in order to ensure the organization is always moving forward with new ideas.
