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.

Student / Professional Mixer

After a well attended and well received Evening Student / Industry Mixer after the 2017 spring meeting, we have decided to offer this event again -- this time as a luncheon mixer. A buffet meal will be served (free for students). The event will be from noon to 1:30 pm. In addition to a panel of professionals from various agencies and firms, the event offers a casual and informative venue for students to seek career advice from professionals. Students and professional representatives are encouraged to attend. Registration will be required to get an accurate count for meals.
