Message from 2017 President
AIPG is moving into new and exciting times; the past year has seen a big change for AIPG with the retirement of Executive Director Bill Siok. Bill has done an exemplary job during his tenure, and his dedication to AIPG is greatly appreciated. I am looking forward to working with our new Executive Director and the Executive Committee to advance the Institute’s mission and help to provide increased value to our members.
Over the past several months, I’ve been asking members about their perception of AIPG, and whether they believe it provides good value. So far, I have received good feedback from members and appreciate their honesty. Some have indicated that being a member is valuable to them as professionals while others have not found it to be as beneficial. Many of the members who indicated that membership is beneficial indicated that they actively participate in organization activities at the Section and/or National levels. One of my goals as President is to encourage greater membership participation and find more and different ways to encourage participation to make sure that being a part of AIPG is beneficial.
One of the biggest advantages that many of our members have realized is that active participation leads to a strong network. You’ll make valuable connections that will enrich your personal life and professional career. There are many young geologists just starting their career who benefit from mentoring by an older, more experienced professional. You never know when one of your new connections may collaborate with you on a project where outside expertise is needed. Some of our members have found that building a network through AIPG contacts helped them to find a new and better position in a different company after losing their job. Having a strong network is something that you can build through active participation in AIPG. This is a value that membership provides that state licensure does not. If by maintaining your AIPG membership and participating in its events, you were able make a contact that shortened the time it took to find a new position by months or weeks, wouldn’t the cost be worth it?
So as we go forward, I encourage each of you to do two things. First, invest in yourself and renew your AIPG membership to show your support for the institute’s mission in representing geologists and our profession. Second, actively participate in the organization. This may be done in a variety of ways, including communicate with your section leadership and/or national leadership, help plan a meeting, a field trip, write an article for the section newsletter, submit an article to the TPG, and reach out to other members in your geographic area to name a few. We welcome your input and invite you to contact those of us serving on the National Executive Committee and provide your thoughts on how AIPG as an organization can better serve its members and represent professional geologists. Remember, communica-tion is key. Together, we can continue to build a better and stronger AIPG.
Thank you for being part of AIPG!
