The Annual Meeting Committee’s mission is to support the local DEG Chairman for each annual AAPG meeting. The DEG Past President is the Chair of this Committee, and is joined by the President-elect. The local DEG Program Chairs for each annual meeting also serve on the Committee both during the year of “their” meeting and during the following year, to provide continuity from year to year. In addition, each of the Committee Chairs listed above are tasked to advise the Annual Meeting Committee to provide programmatic suggestions for oral and poster presentations, short courses, panel discussions, and field trips. This is a new Committee, formed to make sure that each local DEG Chairman has the strong support of the DEG community as that person plans the DEG Program for the Annual Convention each year.
