The Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists recognizes Darrell Connelly as a recipient of the 2009 RMAG President’s Award in appreciation of his work on behalf of the Prospect Fair and Technofest.
Darrell has served on the Prospect Fair and Technofest Committee since the early part of this decade, chairing the committee from 2005-2008. During his tenure, the Prospect Fair and Technofest attendance has greatly expanded to almost 150 vendor and prospect booths and 1000 attendees. In addition to chairing the committee, every year Darrell reserves an exhibitor booth, advertises in the event pamphlet, donates door prizes, and is one of the sponsors for the event. Most importantly, Darrell maintains the event website which he designed on behalf of the host societies: the Denver Association of Petroleum Land men, the Denver Geophysical Society, the Independent Petroleum Association of Mountain States, the local chapter of the Society of Petroleum Engineers, and of course, the RMAG.
For all of his creative initiative as committee chair, sponsor, advertiser, exhibitor and web designer and for his ability to coordinate and satisfy all the needs of the host societies, exhibitors and attendees of the Prospect Fair and Technofest, the RMAG is proud to present this award to Darrell Connelly.
