April 13, 2013
The Board of EEGS would like to encourage student members to consider forming a student chapter. Student membership in EEGS is now free and students of any college or university having accredited programs in the geological sciences or geological engineering may petition the EEGS Board of Directors to form an EEGS Student Chapter.
BENEFITS OF FORMING A CHAPTER:
- 2 free SAGEEP registrations (Chapter leadership must select and approve chapter students who will attend SAGEEP and receive the complimentary conference registrations)
- 1 free SAGEEP workshop/short course registration (Chapter leadership must select and approve the chapter student who will attend SAGEEP and receive the complimentary short course registration)
- 1 free copy of SAGEEP proceedings
REQUIREMENTS FOR FORMING A CHAPTER:
A minimum of two students and a faculty advisor are required to form a Chapter. All chapter members must be EEGS members. Each Chapter will have a President and Vice President, whose responsibilities include promoting student participation in EEGS and SAGEEP through Chapter activities.
REQUIREMENTS FOR MAINTAINING A CHAPTER:
A minimum of two meetings (one per semester) must be held by the Chapter each calendar year.
- An annual report must be submitted to the EEGS Student Committee by the end of January of each year for inclusion in the EEGS Board meeting held concurrently with SAGEEP.
To begin the process of forming a chapter, complete the petition form
and send it to the EEGS Student Committee Chairperson, Laura Sherrod (firstname.lastname@example.org
). We look forward to seeing you in Boston at SAGEEP 2014.
EEGS Student Committee:
Laura Sherrod, Chairperson
ATTENTION STUDENT CHAPTER REPRESENTATIVES:
At SAGEEP 2014, the Student Committee will have a meeting to discuss goals for the upcoming year. Interested chapter representatives are welcome to attend this meeting. The current plan is to hold the meeting on the Monday of SAGEEP during the "Lunch on own" described in the preliminary schedule. We plan to start the meeting at 12:30pm. This will give you time to get lunch and bring it to the meeting room after the morning events.
If you would like to attend, please let Laura Sherrod, Student Committee Chair, know (email address below) to assure an adequately sized room. The meeting and room will be listed in the SAGEEP program. Please email any questions you have to email@example.com.
