This will be our last in-person meeting before we take a haiatus for summer field work. Poster session details are on the flyer below. Students: please submit abstracts and poster topics by Sunday, May 6th.
Message from the Oregon Chapter Chair
Hello Oregon Chapter!
We hope you are all looking forward to our annual Student Night, which will close out our meetings before the summer hiatus. We already have several submissions on topics ranging from colonizing Mars to debris flows and volcanic fields a little closer to Portland. It sounds like there will be something to scratch every engineering and environmental geology itch. While supporting our local students (and future coworkers). If you’re no longer a student, we’re always looking for judges to help make the night a success! (If you’re interested in judging, please contact me or Ryan Cole.) There is no hybrid Zoom option for Student Night. We looked into this last year, and the logistics just don’t work.
The planning for the September AEG Annual Meeting hosted here in Portland, Oregon is in full force! If you have not yet registered to attend, please do! We will not have a regular chapter meeting in September, because we want to encourage everyone who can to attend the annual meeting right here in town.
Looking ahead, we will be sending out the summer newsletter with the ballots for next year’s Chapter Board election in mid-June. We plan to have an end-of-summer social in late August. I think this will be our third year holding that summer social, and it has proved to be a great way to catch up after the excitement of summer. Our next chapter meeting will be in October, when Ray Wells will present on his recent geologic mapping of the Portland Basin.
It has been a pleasure being your Chapter Chair this year.
