We are happy to announce an exciting lineup for 2022! With a new year comes a renewed hope we will return to some sense of normal and a return to in-person gatherings. We were hoping to begin in-person meetings in late 2021, but varying mandates and the rise of the omicron variant led us to postpone any in-person meetings to Spring of 2022 (a million thanks to Dave Simpson for being so flexible so he could be our first in-person presentation in two years).
January 19 – 2021-2022 Jahns Distinguished Lecturer, Rick Wooten (virtual)
March 8 – A Joint Meeting with SFGI, Edmund Medley (virtual)
April – (date TBD) Field Trip to Mt Diablo
May 10 – Dave Simpson (in-person)
Summer – (date TBD) AEG President, Maddie German (in-person)
It is with a sad heart that AEG announces the passing in early July of one of our strongest supporters and AEG Association Past President, Dr. John W. Williams.
Dr. Williams was an active AEG member of the San Francisco Section/Chapter, professor of engineering geology and Department Chair at San Jose State University (1976 – 2010), and former AEG National President (1988). Dr. Williams also served as the Association of State Boards of Geology (ASBOG) President and a founding Officer and President of the Engineering Geology Foundation (1996), now the AEG Foundation.
Additional information on Dr. Williams will be shared during our Annual Meeting in San Antonio and future issues of the AEG News and EEG Journal.
