RMAG heads into 2004 with fiscal health and with a balanced budget to cover the wide range of anticipated activities and projects. Steve Goolsby, Continuing Education chair, is presently exploring topics and searching for symposia chairmen for spring and fall symposia. Possible themes may include paleotectonics of the Rocky Mountains and hydrothermal dolomite deposits and hydrocarbon accumulations. A one-day core workshop may be offered as well.

Several bargains are being offered for two RMAG videos: “Sequence Stratigraphy” and “Lighting the Frontier.” Buy copies for yourself or for your favorite geology/earth science teacher!

The AAPG/RMAG Jonah book may be released in time for the April convention in Dallas. The RMAG office will receive its inventory of copies soon thereafter and will market them on its website and at its symposia. A valuable set of transcripts and course notes from Fred Meissner’s Advanced Petroleum Geology course at the Colorado School of Mines is also being compiled this semester and will be published on a CD if funding can be obtained.

Want to see your name in print? Bob Raynolds and Susan Landon are spearheading an effort to raise the prominence of The Mountain Geologist by calling for more articles. Likewise, Pete Varney is soliciting articles concerning the geology of Colorado parks.

The RMAG Board voted to allow nonmembers who sign up at the non-member rate for the 3D Seismic Symposium this year to join the organization for the remainder of the year for no additional charge. An RMAG membership can’t be beat in terms of services, information, social events, and professionalism!
