Dear PGS Members and Associates,
It is my pleasure to invite you to join the Potomac Geophysical Society (PGS) for the 2015-2016 season. PGS is a local section of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and an affiliate society of the American Geophysical Union (AGU). Our goal is to encourage interaction among those in the region around Washington, D.C., who have an interest in geophysics or related earth sciences. Over the years, members of PGS have included individuals working in a broad range of government, academic, and private sector jobs.
PGS has continued to remain active and vital largely due to the interest of a dedicated group of loyal members. We would like to encourage you to be a part of this group. If you have not been a member, we ask that you join and attend this year. PGS cannot maintain its vitality without your support. PGS members receive a discounted price of $25.00 for dinner at the monthly meetings; non-members will be required to pay $30.00 for dinner. Members and non-members may attend the presentation only at no charge.
PGS will meet on September 24, 2015, (fourth Thursday); then will meet on the third Thursday of each month at the Officers’ Club at Fort Myer in Arlington, VA. The meetings typically include a social hour starting at 6:00 PM, followed by an optional dinner served at 7:30 PM, and a topical discussion by an invited speaker beginning at 8:30 PM. Our 1st Vice President, Marc Buursink, is busily working on arranging a very interesting series of talks for the upcoming season. If you have recommendations for speakers or discussion topics, any of the officers will be happy to hear from you.
For additional background, information, directions to the meetings, and breaking news about PGS, please check out our website at: http://www.potomacgeophysical.com.
We hope you will be able to join us on a regular basis in 2015-2016. We look forward to seeing you!
