Eastern Section of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists
The Eastern Section of the AAPG represents 13 member societies in the eastern United States. The society holds their annual meeting every year in different locations across the region. These annual meetings cover topics in conventional hydrocarbon exploration and production, unconventional resources such as shale gas, carbon sequestration, and environmental solutions.
The Appalachian Geological Society and the Eastern Section of the American Association of Petroleum Geologist are presenting a symposium on the Marcellus and Utica mudrocks of the Appalachian basin. On Monday (November 4) a series of eight thirty minute presentations will cover important aspects of one of the hottest basins in North America for unconventional resource exploration and production. A reception and icebreaker will occur on Sunday evening (November 3).

Eastern Section Student Expo
The Eastern Section Student Expo will be held Saturday and Sunday (November 2-3). The Expo links geoscience students with industry recruiters. Students can network, present and discuss their research and interview with multiple potential employers. Students are requested to submit their resumes and poster abstracts in advance of the meeting. This material will assist companies to identify candidates.
Students should be seniors or graduate students seeking summer interns or regular employment. Students who graduated within the last two years may still participate in this event. Geoscience faculty members are encouraged to attend.
Companies enjoy a cost-effective and timely recruiting opportunity from the numerous geoscience departments across the Eastern Section. Companies are encouraged to sponsor activities.
