American Institute of Professional Geologists Announces New Executive Director
The American Institute of Professional Geologists, a service and educational organization serving the geosciences since 1963, has announced the selection of Aaron W. Johnson, PhD as its new executive director. Johnson will fill the vacancy created by the retirement of William J. Siok, CPG. The selection was made after a national search and selection process.
“We are very pleased to announce this appointment,” reported AIPG President Helen Hickman. “Dr. Johnson will bring new leadership and creativity to AIPG’s programs and a fresh perspective to AIPG’s continuing mission in support the geosciences and its practitioners.”
Dr. Johnson’s resume includes over 20 years of planning, administration, communications, fund-raising, and teaching experience in the academic sector. He was awarded a doctorate in Geological Sciences in 2003 from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and has been the recipient of numerous awards and honors for his outstanding contributions to teaching and research.
“My work with non-profit organizations has allowed me to develop a management philosophy grounded in the concept that people are the most important resource in an organization.” remarks Johnson. I believe it’s imperative to “strike a balance between dedication to the mission of the organization and outlining a bold vision for the future.” Dr. Johnson will officially assume the role beginning August 22.
AIPG is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization providing centralized and innovative information, education, and administrative support for the US geosciences community. AIPG is a Member Society of the American Geosciences Institute.
