Comments from the President of the Dallas Geophysical Society

May 2015

Again, the key event for this month was the successful implementation of the Website.  At each of our Board of Directors meetings, the Web Team has reviewed the colossal effort that they have put into getting this running, so I reiterate my thanks to Dan Nietupski, Chris Carter and Scott Simms.  They hasten to point out that this is a work in process, but it is up and functional.  Three cheers.

As a spin-off of the website functionality, you all received a ballot for the Board of Officers for the 2015-2016 year.  After the voting this month, they will be introduced at our annual meeting on Thursday May 21.

The Annual Meeting on May 21 will include recognition for the people that have organized our events for the past year, and recognition for outstanding members of the Dallas Geophysical Society.  Our Awards Committee has chosen Milo Backus for a Distinguished Service Award, and George McMehan for an Honary Life Mememership.  Milo Backus and George McMechan are both so well known in our organization, and are well deserving of these awards.

It is almost needless to say that the Golf Tournament will be on Monday May 4.  This is one of the highlights of the year.

For the May meeting, we promise to keep the formalities as brief as possible because the speaker will be Christopher Liner who is the current President of the SEG.  His topic will be the current and future state of the SEG whose globalization and technical focus has evolved so rapidly in the last few years.

Happy, hunting.  See you at Brookhaven on Thursday May 21.
