The 2020 Field Conference: Karst Geology of New Jersey and Vicinity Revisited is postponed to October 2021 (specific dates to be announced in the near future). Due to the on-going uncertainty related to COVID-19, the Geological Association of New Jersey Executive Board has determined it is in the best interest of the membership to postpone the Annual Field Conference, scheduled for October 16 and 17, 2020, until October 2021. The exact dates will be announced in the future. We endeavored to hold our scheduled conference this year, but it has become increasingly clear that we cannot do so in a manner that would ensure the safety of all participants in the meeting. We regret any inconvenience that this decision has caused for our members.
While we cannot convene a traditional Field Conference, we are planning a one-day virtual meeting of the entire membership on October 17, 2020, beginning at noon. Please reserve the day and time. The purpose of this meeting is to give all members a chance to ask questions about the purposes and future of GANJ. This will be an opportunity for all participants to learn more about the organization and to add their voices to shaping our future. A part of this gathering will be a panel for students discussing the importance of undergraduates attending professional meetings, and how such experiences have influenced their education and career. Please draw this to the attention those students you believe may be interested in becoming part of our organization. Anyone interested in attending the virtual meeting is not required to be an active member.
You will be required to make a reservation to attend the meeting (you have to make a reservation to receive the link to the virtual meeting) and will give you the opportunity to propose up to three questions to be discussed at the meeting. Those questions and the completed form will be due no later than Wednesday, October 14, 2020. Click here to download the reservation form.
