Have you been following #ACE2016? This week AAPG had its Annual Convention and Exposition, and SEPM is hosting their annual meeting there concurrently. You can see what happened by searching the hashtag #ACE2016 on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. AGI's current President, and Texas State Geologist, Scott Tinker, was recognized for his outstanding leadership (we couldn't agree more!). There are also pictures of the networking reception co-hosted by AWG and SEG, in addition to AAPG. As always, we love to see the pictures from the Imperial Barrel Award (IBA) competition and the field trips exploring the geology of the Calgary area.
This year, University of Texas El Paso won the IBA competition, followed by Penn State, and the Colorado School of Mines. We congratulate the winners of this year's competition and all those who competed; there is some tough competition out there!
