“I would say to the next generation, joining SEG is what professionals do. It’s part of your professional life.”Steve Hill, Past SEG President and author
EPIC (Emerging Professionals International Committee)
Are you an emerging professional and want to get more active within the SEG community? Then join EPIC, become a volunteer, and make the work of SEG more streamlined and efficient. EPIC is SEG’s resource for emerging professionals (those with less than eight years in the industry). It is a global group sharing a common interest in sponsoring gatherings of emerging geoscientists to discuss and gain further understanding of their respective disciplines. EPIC has representation on associated SEG committees to ensure that the SEG leadership considers the needs and wants of its future leaders as guiding decisions are made. Keeping emerging professionals engaged with SEG is the committee’s goal.
Volunteering for SEG lets you network and collaborate with other SEG members from all over the world on topics that you care about and that make an important contribution to the Society. Among other opportunities, SEG is currently seeking emerging professionals who want to volunteer on one of the following committees:
- Continuing Education
- Field Camps
- Health, Safety, Security, and Environment
- Travel Grants
- CUSP (Committee on University and Student Programs)
“I’d say never stop learning. That is my motto in life. You reach a certain stage and then you probably start thinking, ‘Well, I have done enough, and I’ve won some awards, and my name is well-known,’ but that is not the end game. The end point is continued learning.”Satinder Chopra, TGS
