New Mexico Geological Society Annual Spring Meeting
Macey Center, New Mexico Tech campus, Socorro, NM
April 13, 2018


Every spring, the Society holds a meeting in Socorro to allow presentation of geoscience research, principally from New Mexico and adjacent areas. This event is always well attended and is a great way to meet other researchers and students working in New Mexico. During the meeting, several Society scholarships are awarded to students from New Mexico.

Student participation is highly encouraged as this meeting provides an excellent venue for student presentations. Oral and poster sessions will focus largely on the geology of New Mexico and adjacent areas. Abstracts are solicited from all geoscience disciplines.

Evening Student / Industry Mixer

After a well attended and well received Evening Student / Industry Mixer at the 2017 spring meeting, we have decided to offer this event again. The mixer will be from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. A casual meal and hors d'oeuvres will be served (catered by Chartwells), along with a cash bar. The event offers a casual but informative venue for students to seek career advice from professionals. Although registration for the mixer is required, it is free. Students and industry representatives are encouraged to attend.
