Home / 1st Vice President Letter

March 2018

1st VP:  Debrah Gann

It’s quite an honor to be representing WTGS for a second term as the First Vice-President for 2017-18. The responsibility as First Vice-President is to work with the Chair for each of these committees: Boy Scouts, Computer, Internet/Website, Publications, Publicity & PR, Mentor, Clay Shoot and Youth Education. Please visit the WTGS website to see all the volunteers who currently Chair these committees. If you have an interest at any level please contact the committee Chair to volunteer. As you further peruse the website, if you have a geological need not fulfilled, be sure to contact an officer or a committee Chair and provide your suggestions.

Our 2017-2018 year so far has been phenomenal. WTGS has had some very intriguing luncheons full of highly important information for all of our membership with more in the months to come. Behind the luncheons are our Committee Chairs working diligently to educate, raise funds for WTGS (Clay Shoot), design and maintain the WTGS website, get the word out to membership and our community of upcoming events, publishing the WTGS Bulletin, rounding up volunteers to mentor up and coming Geologists, provide an outlet for our youth (and Boy Scouts) to expand their knowledge in the earth sciences and not least of all, keep the WTGS electronic-office running smoothly. Whew, that is just half of all WTGS does for its membership and our region.

Now, don’t you wish you could be more? Just call me or any board member or committee chair and you will be guaranteed a place at the table. You may think you don’t have time, but no one has time. You’ll never know how much benefit participating in WTGS can be until you take a role in the best and well oiled machine you will ever experience. COME ON!!

Here’s something for the history books…

Oil World Turned Upside Down as America Sells Oil in Middle East

Whaaaaatttt???? Yes it is true. It seems “American condensate, a type of very light crude oil, was preferred to regional grades because its superior quality made more suitable for the UAE’s processing plants, a person with knowledge of the matter said, asking not to be identified discussing a commercially sensitive matter”.

You will just have to google the title to read the whole article. It is a definite news flash.

It is truly an honor to be involved with WTGS in all the roles I have had at this society and I will always cherish the friends and business relationships I have made. I hope you will bring a guest to our next luncheon and ask for a membership form for that guest. It is quite a big deal to be a WTGS member!!

With Greatest Respect,

Debrah Gann
