Organize a Workshop or Field Trip

The AAG is currently seeking field trip and workshop ideas for the upcoming AAG Annual Meeting. Workshops and field trips are an excellent way to meet and exchange ideas with other conference attendees.

Proposals should be submitted by December 8, 2014 (though that is more of a motivational deadline, and we'll still accept good proposals afterwards). Workshops and field trips are an excellent way for participants to learn about different areas of geography in an interactive environment. We encourage you to submit your ideas for consideration.

Anyone interested in organizing a workshop or field trip for the 2015 Annual Meeting may contact Rebecca Epstein at 703-964-1240 x 25 or repstein@conferencemanagers.com for assistance or more information.

NOTE: In keeping with the AAG's effort to promote the fair and equal treatment of members, field trips organized by AAG members or specialty groups at the Annual Meeting will, as a rule, be open to all members. In instances where a member or specialty group wishes to organize a field trip that explicitly excludes any group of AAG members, the organizer will petition the AAG Council for an exception to this policy by the date when field trip proposals are due. If Council grants the exception, notice will be given in the AAG Newsletter, along with an explanation of the reason for the exception. Please keep this rule of open access in mind as you organize your field trip.
