Happy April!

As the melt is on in Southern Alberta, I wanted to send my thoughts out to our colleagues on the East Coast who are still unburying themselves from some crazy snowfalls: 47cm in 37 hours in St. John’s, Nfld the first week of April. (Thanks Deric Cameron for that stat…) Friendly reminder: if you have yet to renew your CSEG membership, now would be the time to do it… all the CSEG summer social events are starting registration soon, and you need to be a CSEG member to participate. You also get member rates for the GeoConvention… just saying!

SAVE THE DATE: Geophysical Industry Field Trip (GIFT)

The CSEG Foundation’s Geophysical Industry Field Trip (GIFT) is a three day event, held June 5-7th, 2014, that is designed to supplement academic education by introducing undergraduate geoscience students to the professional geophysics industry. The goal of this event is to tour prominent companies that use seismic in the oil and gas industry. Technical presentations will be provided, with each company focusing in on their respective specializations including acquisition, processing and interpretation. This event will give students the chance to gain insight on the various geophysical career opportunities and will aid in demonstrating how academic knowledge will be applied in the workforce. It will be a great opportunity for students to network with industry professionals and fellow peers from across Canada.

Registration is now open and available on the CSEG website. For sponsorship or any questions, please email usofieldtrip@cseg.ca.

SAVE THE DATE: Women in Seismic Golf Tournament

The Women in Seismic (WiSE) Golf Tournament was started in 2000 to allow women in the Seismic industry an opportunity to network and socialize with their peers. Our entrants are from all parts of the industry: geophysicists, geologists, technical staff, processors, copy houses, management, sales and support staff from service companies. Recently, the tournament has involved raising money for the Alberta Cancer Foundation with proceeds to both Breast Cancer and Ovarian Cancer research. With the support of corporate and personal donations, WiSe has raised over $100,000 in the past years.

Please keep Thursday, September 11th, 2014 open for the WiSE Golf tournament. We will be holding the tournament once again at Fox Hollow in Calgary. Registration and sponsorship information will be released soon. If you would like to volunteer on the WiSE Committee, please contact Joanne Poloway at joanne.poloway@sigmaex.com.
