New activity, upcoming events, and sound finances were highlights of the February Board of Directors meeting.

A multi-day field trip on Coal Stratigraphy, as a new addition to the CBM Symposium, generated lots of discussion and was ultimately approved. To be organized and led by John Horne and co-sponsored by the PTTC, the trip will not only be geologically fascinating but will also be an experimental RMAG foray into a Field Seminar form of Continuing Education, resembling the successful AAPG trips. Watch for the June 10 CBM Symposium meeting announcement and sign up early as field trip space will be limited.

By the time you read this, the 9th 3-D Seismic Symposium will be history, the 10th is already in planning, and the series has, in fact, become the longest running RMAG Symposium series. That legendary success is largely due to chairman and past RMAG President Randy Ray, who continues to epitomize the best in volunteerism. Randy received Board approval, as required, to Chair the Rocky Mountain Section AAPG meeting in August of 2004. Randy has some great ideas for broadening the venue and participation in that conference. He is assembling an experienced organizing team and will need help in staffing committees for that event, so say “yes” when he contacts you!

Overall, the RMAG remains in great shape financially with membership renewals, 3-D symposium registrations, and early-in-the-year publication sales all on target with budget forecasts.
