In case you need more motivation to sign up for a student membership….

This morning an email was sent around to all of the AAPG student chapters regarding a contest for a $400 credit at the AAPG Store. All we have to do is get the most members to join or renew their AAPG student memberships by December 1, 2014.

Please make sure to finish your AAPG student membership applications. Those 5 minutes you spend filling out this form could really pay off!

How to Register for CSPG and AAPG Membership

Our club bylaws dictate that we must have at least 9 registered members of AAPG within the PPS. Taking the initiative to sign up for geological associations is a good way to show you are serious about geology/geophysics. As we are affiliates for CSPG and AAPG, these are the membership registrations that will be highlighted in this post. Both memberships you can sign up for free.

Many other associations and their membership links can be found under the “Useful Links” tab. Not all associations offer student membership for free.
