Is your chapter eligible to take part in these upcoming opportunities?

Many chapters still haven’t turned in their reports, so the answer could be NO.

The bylaws require the student chapter to submit two reports, one mid-year and another at the end of the calendar year. These reports are vital to AAPG in that they provide AAPG with its only tangible data regarding the success of the program. The Chapter’s reports keep the Chapter eligible for many of the benefits to having an AAPG Student Chapter and are what the Student Chapter Committee references in order to decide the Outstanding Student Chapters each year. It is preferable that the Chapters report be emailed to, as a Word or PDF attachment. However reports may also be mailed or faxed to AAPG HQ.

A report is defined as a document containing:

  1. A listing of the officers of the chapter (AAPG member number, name and email addresses)
  2. Faculty advisor and any co-advisors (AAPG member number, name and email addresses)
  3. A member list for the Chapter (AAPG member number and name)
  4. A report on activities the chapter has engaged in since their last report was filed.
  5. A brief financial summary of the Chapter’s usage of funds.

All reports for the year, including the End of Year Reports(activities from July-December), are due by the deadline of Dec15th.

We have received the following university’s Mid-Year Reports for the activities from January-June (listed in alphabetical order). If your chapter is not listed here we have not recieved your report.
