Please plan to attend the 27th West Texas Geological Society Fall Symposium. The two days of technical sessions will feature oral and poster sessions presented by outstanding authors showcasing current research, field studies, core analysis and other aspects of the Permian Basin, analogous areas and developing technologies.  The symposium provides attendees with a chance to network with their peers in a technical setting that also provides opportunities for social interaction.


The Fall Symposium will be held at the Midland County Horseshoe Arena Midland, Texas.  For more information, contact: WTGS @ (432) 683-1573 / wtgs@wtgs.org

An Ethics Luncheon will take place on Thursday at the Horseshoe . The presentation will be given by Dr. Christopher Mathewson. Regents Professor, Emeritus, TAMU .  This presentation meets the Ethics Requirement for Professional Development Hours for Geologists and Engineers licensed in Texas.  Registration for the Ethics Luncheon is space-limited and is sold on a first-come / first-served basis to symposium attendees.  If any tickets remain by Wednesday at 2:00 pm, those seats may be sold to non-attendees.

In addition to technical sessions, WTGS will also host a field trip to the Guadalupes, Delaware and Apache Mountains Thursday afternoon through Sunday.  Both of these events require separate registration, and are NOT included on this form.
