Join AAPG and Save
Onward and Upward
Joining the American Association of Petroleum Geologists is a great way of actively participating in the geology community. Since its founding in 1917, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists has been a pillar of the worldwide scientific community. The original purpose of AAPG — to foster scientific research, advance the science of geology, promote technology and inspire high professional conduct — still guides the Association today.
Currently the world’s largest professional geological society with more than 38,000 members, AAPG provides publications, conferences and educational opportunities to geoscientists and disseminates the most current geological information available to the general public. AAPG, an international geological organization, has members in more than 125 countries around the world. Included among its members are geologists, geophysicists, CEOs, managers, consultants, students and academicians.
