A Welcome Letter from the 2019 Conference General Chair.
I am very excited to invite you to the 2019 Pacific Section AAPG Convention to be held in Long Beach, California at the Pointe Conference Center in the Walter Pyramid on the campus of California State University, Long Beach. Our host is the Los Angeles Basin Geological Society, along with our Pacific Section SEPM and Pacific Coast Section SEG partners. Our theme is: "West Coast Creativity in Exploration and Development." We are excited to present a new format and focus that we hope will stimulate your own creativity and success. This will be a field-based conference with a focused theme for one main technical session, as well as parallel oral and poster sessions for other technical aspects of petroleum-related and sedimentary geology. Two stimulating field trips, social hours, and the All-Conference and Awards dinner will be included with registration. The convention committee has been working diligently to provide a great technical program with field trips that are sure to ignite your passion for geology! We'll see you in April!
