Howdy. I just wanted to give a plug to the American Institute of Professional Geologists. They are holding a conference in Lexington, Kentucky on August 7, 2010 titled:
Obviously, this conference is geared toward an audience of your more hardcore geologists as well as those involved with soil and groundwater remediation and remediation technologies.
Yes. Yes. The conference certainly falls on a Saturday; however, it’s really inexpensive. Additionally, being on a Saturday really takes any business [or billable] conflicts out of the equation. Judging by the schedule it looks like this is going to be a pretty cool conference. Personally, I like this kind of situation as it’s very tactical… get in – get a big download of information – and bug out. No fuss. No muss.
I’m thinking about scooting right at the 5 p.m. closing. I spoke with someone today who told me that around the city of Lexington it’s all very beautiful horse farms. That means great photography material right there! Plus, the World Equestrian Games 2010 is being held at Kentucky Horse Park from late-September to early-October. The World Equestrian Games are, how should I put this? GINORMOUS!?!?! So the AIPG conference is a great time to get in and get out of Lexington if horses aren’t your thing.
For more information, please visit the Kentucky Section AIPG web page. Hopefully, we’ll bump into one another!
