YP Meet & Greet
Date: Sunday, 6 April
Time: 2:00 p.m.– 3:00 p.m.
Location: George R. Brown Convention Center
Make plans to participate in the annual YP Meet & Greet event. This is a great networking opportunity and serves as a link to connect students and professionals at ACE. The Young Professionals Committee oversees this event, pairing students and young professionals with experienced AAPG attendees to guide newcomers through the convention experience. Participants will have
the opportunity to be introduced prior to the Opening Session on Sunday afternoon. Professionals may be paired with one or more students/young professionals. Experienced attendees will then go to the Opening Session with their group and are encouraged to show the students/young professionals around the Exhibition Hall during the Icebreaker Reception introducing them to other AAPG members and their colleagues. This program grows in popularity every year with positive reviews from all who participate. Please indicate your interest in this program during the registration process.
