The American Institute of Professional Geologist (AIPG) will host a workshop at the Geological Society of America Annual Meeting in Phoenix, AZ in September 2019 to give students and young professionals the opportunity to learn from seasoned mentors and to develop networking skills.
This workshop will give attendees the tools to guide their career path, and provide helpful tips on making the process easier. The one-day workshop will include flash-mentoring that will allow attendees to have discussions with senior level professionals from a variety of companies and public agencies.
A flyer with the details of the workshop can be found at this link.
Tucson becomes a playground for the world of international gem, mineral, fossils and meteorite aficionados annually during the Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase. The AIPG Arizona Section invites AIPG members, their families and friends to join us on Saturday, February 8, 2020 for a stroll through a small sampling of the more than 40 different shows followed by lunch. The cost of the buffet lunch is included in the registration fee for the event.
Our event will be on Saturday, February 8, 2020. We will meet in the lobby of the Travelodge Hotel and then break into small groups that will be led by a local geologist through the show held at the Desert Inn. Then we will walk to the Kettle Restaurant, where we’ll have lunch. The distance between the Travelodge and the restaurant is 0.2 miles. We don’t anticipate more than 2 hours of strolling through the exhibits. The Desert Inn show is open to the public and free.
We plan to have a private room at the restaurant so we may socialize and have a short presentation. After lunch, participants will be able to continue browsing the various shows.
