Message from the Chair
Dear AEG Oregon,
It’s nearly summer- can’t we all tell?! We are hoping to welcome students and professionals alike at our first in-person Student Night since 2019! Please join us on Tuesday, May 24th at the Lucky Lab on Quimby.
Students, it’s not too late to submit a poster! Please share your research with us, be it a class project or thesis in progress! (Posters previously presented, such as at a conference or class work are also welcome).
We held a hybrid meeting in April, welcoming the Distinguished Jahns Lecturer, Rick Wooten, to Portland on the start of his Pacific Northwest tour. Rick relayed his hard-earned and salient lessons learned about landslide preparedness, response, and recovery, from experiences he gleaned over 30 years in North Carolina with the NC Geological Survey.
In other professional network happenings, the AEG National Meeting is being held in nearby (relatively speaking) Las Vegas, Nevada this September! It will most certainly be an exciting event. Las Vegas is a great jump-off point for the neighboring Red Rocks, NV or even the Grand Canyon- a geologists’ delight on a grand scale. Consider joining your peers! Early registration ends in August- still plenty of time to sign up.
Perhaps you have another trip in mind- maybe enjoying some of our National Parks and public lands on a family road trip? If so, the latest issue of the E&EG has you covered with fascinating deep dives on the Vermillion and Echo Cliffs landslides in northern AZ, or farther east in the Badlands, SD on the Cedar Pass landslide. I’d like to visit both someday- with a professionals’ analysis in hand! Check it out.
Are you reading this wondering why you haven’t had a chance to give input on Oregon AEG? The best way to give it is by joining the Board! We are seeking an incoming Secretary to join the Board this fall. Some of the benefits include getting to work with colleagues from other companies and shaping how AEG Oregon operates. This year would be a particularly rewarding time to join since we will be hosting the 2023 AEG National Meeting in Portland! AEG Oregon has a long-established presence in the region, and we hope to stay as proactive and useful to the greater geoscience community as we can. Please consider joining!
The Board has had a pleasure serving you all this year. We weathered some in-person and hybrid switcheroos and hullabaloos; thanks for showing up and supporting the speakers and your fellow colleagues. We are providing Continuing Education Credit hours via technical speakers, and this year, we have had some fascinating talks. It felt good to reconnect with folks. I hope you let us know how this year went, or how things can be improved- we’re all ears!
