The Board of Directors meeting was held on April 18, 2012 in the RMAG office boardroom. The meeting began with a review of RMAG’s first quarter income and expenses. I am again happy to report that we are continuing to increase our income considerably from the same time last year. Our expenses are still down from last year, as well. We plan to continue the year with a positive financial report. The 2012 Board of Director’s biographies have been uploaded to the RMAG website ( If you have not done so, please check them out to see what we are all about.

The Continuing Education Committee reported that it has lunch talks scheduled through July. As a reminder, RMAG has decided to move the luncheon talks from the Marriott City Center to the Sheraton Hotel starting in June. The Niobrara Symposium is planned for July 24th. If you have not done so, please sign up. Be on the lookout for information about the summer speaker series, the Prospect Fair set for September 12th, and a Frac short course on October 22nd.

The Publications Committee has held the kick-off meeting for the “Oil and Gas Fields of Colorado” publication that is set to be completed near the middle of next year. Several ideas for future publication have been discussed including a DJ Basin Guidebook, a “New Exploration Tools” volume, and “Cross Sections of Rocky Mountain Basins.” Please let us know if you have any ideas of other publications that you would like to see. The BOD has approved the digitizing of the structural components in the Geologic Atlas of the Rocky Mountain Region, a.k.a “The Big Red Book.”

The meeting included the approval of some motions, one of which was the approval of the AAPG award nominations presented by Tricia Beaver from the Professional Awards Committee.

The RMAG Golf Tournament will be well attended, as it has already sold out. We look forward to seeing you on June 28th at Fossil Trace.

The May Board of Director’s meeting was held on Wednesday, May 16th, at the University Building conference room on the 11th floor. The June meeting will be held June 18th at the same location.
