Plan on attending AIPG’s 55th Annual Conference in Colorado Springs! Our field trips will explore central Colorado including the Cripple Creek & Victor gold mine, the Portland cement plant and adjacent Niobrara Formation quarry, the upper Arkansas geothermal systems, the latest in SW South Park geology, and the Wall Mountain Tuff, among others. The technical sessions will cover the full spectrum of geosciences; start thinking about your presentation. We’re planning short courses on being an expert witness, the use of Rockware’s software, and preparing an AIPG/AGI GOLI course. We’ll have an Association of Women Geoscientists (AWG) Workshop and Student Career Workshop on Saturday, September 8th. Young professionals start working on a presentation on a project you’re working on that will induce your employer to send you to the meeting; remember such presentations are also good marketing for your firm. And we’re arranging a trip on the Pikes Peak Cog Railway to the 14,115-foot summit of America’s mountain.
