Alaska presidential visit by Gary Luce
AEG
In early October, AEG President Gary Luce was able to visit the Alaska Section, which had been struggling to hold meetings since the Annual Meeting was held there in 2011. Luce's trip included visiting University of Alaska Fairbanks, University of Alaska Anchorage and Alaska Pacific University, also in Anchorage. Luce's message to the students was the incredible demand for geoscientists that is being projected due to the retirement of the baby boomer generation over the next 10 years and the increasing awareness of the engineering and environmental sustainability to society.

A note from 2013-2014 AEG Secretary Dale Andrews
AEG
Dale Andrews' involvement with AEG began by attending monthly Allegheny-Ohio Section meetings as a member of the Kent State student chapter back in 1997, thanks to the encouragement of a great mentor — and recent recipient of the Terzaghi Mentor Award — in Dr. Abdul Shakoor. Upon completion of his thesis, Andrews felt privileged learning that his abstract was selected to be part of the speaker's program at AEG's 1999 annual meeting held in Salt Lake City.
