100th Anniversary Committee

In anticipation of the 2017 AAPG centennial celebration – specifically pointing to the Annual Convention and Exhibition (ACE) in Houston and beyond – the 100th Anniversary Committee was organized in 2004 as an ad hoc committee per the suggestion of 2017-18 AAPG President Charles Sternbach.

The committee’s purpose was to organize an ambitious series of events to celebrate the Association’s history, but also to create products that could be used by the membership as part of their daily workflow – and for use in training future generations of petroleum geoscientists.

Charles served as the committee’s founding chair, and convened annual planning meetings from 2004 to 2010 with broad-based committee members to discuss projects and deliverables for membership. As the committee matured, Ed Dolly (2017 Michel T. Halbouty Outstanding Leadership Award recipient) became the chair in 2010, and then past AAPG presidents Steve Sonnenberg and Paul Weimer jointly chaired the committee beginning in 2013.
