AIPG Kentucky Section Annual Event
May 4, 2016 The annual, statewide KY-AIPG event is scheduled for the evening of May 4th at Proud Mary’s BBQ off exit 99 between Richmond and Lexington. This is for all geoscientists. It will be informal, and come-and-go as you please, but we will have 3 or 4 geologists there from different schools/industry explaining what they do.  Open to ALL geoscientists; you don’t have to be a member. We especially encourage students to come because it is a good opportunity to network with professionals.  A strong professional geologist showing is desired as well! 

SEE THE LINK BELOW TO RSVP (if you are on Facebook ... If not, it’s OK. We just want to get a ballpark idea of how many are coming).  More information on the venue is on the Facebook link. Check back for updated information. We hope to see you there!
