Message from 2014 President-Elect
J. Foster Sawyer, CPG
AIPG 2015 National President



It is with great pleasure that I write this message to the membership of AIPG as we complete an outstanding year under the leadership of Ray Talkington and embark on an exciting new year in 2015. AIPG has taken major strides on many important fronts over the past few years. However, recent growth and development in geoscience related industries present tremendous new opportunities and challenges for our organization and for our profession. Recent measures adopted by AIPG, including free membership for students, designation of a Young Professional Member category, and initiation of  a Young Professionals Pilot Program by the Foundation of AIPG have greatly enhanced our engagement with students and early career geoscientists. We must continue to increase our efforts to engage young geoscientists so that they can benefit from the activities and services of AIPG. In turn these young geoscientists will invigorate and rejuvenate AIPG through their new ideas, fresh perspectives, and energetic endeavors.


It is also important to remember the benefits of AIPG to our members, our profession, and to society in general. Members of AIPG directly benefit from professional certification and from opportunities for professional networking, presentations, field trips, and publications. Other member benefits include website job postings, electronic newsletters, subscription to The Professional Geologist, and access to an outstanding annual conference. Benefits from the broader perspective of the field of professional geology include advocacy at the state and federal levels and seminars, workshops, and webinars that are focused on the latest industry trends and issues. Benefits to society as a whole include the presence of an organization of professional geoscientists who perform vital tasks and provide information regarding critical societal issues such as water and energy resources, earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, landslides, sinkholes, and more. AIPG also maintains public position statements for use by the general public on geological topics such as natural resources, national energy policies, and Earth history.


The membership of AIPG comprises the flagship entity in the field of professional geology, and I would like to thank each of you for your participation in this outstanding organization and for your contributions as professional geologists to science, industry, and for the betterment of society.
