The Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists now has 2027 members. Year-to-date income is higher than anticipated, while expenses have been lower than projected, resulting in a solid financial position.

The Golf Tournament was a great success with RMAG’s share of net profits expected to be twice what was anticipated. The RMAG scholarship fund will receive some of the proceeds from this event. Next year’s event will also be held at the Omni Interlocken resort.

The Publications Committee continues to be very active. The Jonah guidebook currently has 9 committed papers. The committee continues to discuss the pros and cons of digital publishing of our various publications.

The Popular Geology Committee will oversee an RMAG-sponsored art and essay competition for schools during Earth Science Week.

RMAG will participate again this year in the Taste of Colorado. The Board voted to prepare a brochure to promote the organization at this event as well as at other meetings.

Jeanne Harris will continue to be the AAPG Delegate Chairperson for RMAG.

Preparations are continuing for the Innovative Gas Exploration Concepts Symposium to be held on October 1, 2002.
