Workshop attendees will learn the history, chemistry, sampling techniques and current treatment options of PFAS, as well as developing regulatory proposals throughout the country. Over 4,700 PFAS (per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances) exist in the world today. Many PFAS transform into highly persistent perfluorinated chemicals in the environment. Short-chain PFAS tend to be more water soluble and move more easily through soil to contaminate ground-water, surface water or drinking water.

Join the AIPG WI Section and the National Executive Committee on this field trip that will illustrate the geology of the PreCambrian Baraboo Range in southern Wisconsin. This area is well known to structural geology classes that travel there from throughout the Midwest to see the synclinal features of the area. Several stops will include structural elements of the range including steeply dipping layers in the quartzite formation, ripple marks, and boudinage and other deformation features. Adjacent geologic terrains will be discussed including the terminal moraine of the Pleistocene Wisconsin Glaciation, Cambrian sandstones of the “Driftless Area” and the Pleistocene Sauk Prairie. Human history of the area will be included in the geology discussion. Lunch will be in the beautiful Devil’s Lake gorge, a very popular State Park, at which field trip participants will have the opportunity to take a short hike and enjoy the scenery and geologic features. The field trip will conclude with a tour of the historic Wollersheim Winery/Distillery, a winery that was originally developed in the 1840’s which has ties to the development of the Sonoma California wine business and the Beaujolais area of France. Participants will have the opportunity to taste test the wines and distilled spirits created by the winery while enjoying views of the area.
Price: $35.00 - Registration includes transportation, box lunch (includes sandwich or wrap, side, chips, pickle, cookie), water and entrance fees. Free parking at the hotel.

AIPG will present a one-day workshop for students and young professionals at the Geological Society of America annual meeting, which will be held in Phoenix, Arizona. The workshop is intended to help students successfully transition from the classroom into the workforce and to guide both students and young professionals as they start careers in the mining industry. Participants will learn about the importance of balancing life and work demands, expectations of employers, how to navigate the hiring process, what techniques can be used to stand out as a candidate, how to prepare a CV, and strategies for professional development.
Presenters from industry will share their knowledge and experiences as employers, plus speak about their own career paths. The workshop will include several coffee breaks for networking, a lunch with presentations and flash mentoring.
We are looking for AIPG members to participate in the workshop as presenters and during the flash-mentoring session. Please visit the Geological Society of America annual meeting page for more details and to register as a student or mentor.
