President’s message for November 2015
I hope everyone is settled back after an eventful SEG Annual Meeting at New Orleans. Despite the downturn, there was an appreciable energy and optimism on the floor, and the technical program was well attended. Each year, the Annual Meeting is a fruitful time for generating new ideas, re-acquainting with colleagues, and meeting contacts. We will get our turn as gracious host to our geophysical peers when the SEG Annual Meeting returns to Dallas in 2016. If you are interested in participating, please contact myself or the Dallas Geophysical Society to learn of the various volunteer opportunities.
In November, we will be enjoying a joint luncheon with the Dallas Geological Society at our usual venue at Brookhaven College. The topic will be concerning “Permanent Borehole Geophones used to Improve Reservoir Management." All of our events are made successful due to the partnership of corporate sponsors, including Hardin and SEI who are longtime luncheon sponsors, as well as Dawson and Global Geophysical who were amongst the first holiday party sponsors this year. There are many ways to support the local Dallas geophysical community through corporate sponsorship, and no amount is too small. The most immediate opportunity is for this year's holiday party, which is not only a popular event amongst our members but also generates healthy participation from the Dallas Geological Society.
