Our Chapter interaction with Our Campus Community

The AURAK SPWLA chapter met weekly throughout the fall-2017 semester to organize and plan upcoming chapter events. The executive officer of the chapter has been very active in organizing Petro-physics session to demonstrations for the campus at large. These demos, which are executed by AURAK SPLWA members, have included:

  • Presentations to Allow students to promote their interest in petro-physics in an informal environment.
  • Introduce students to the possibility of future study or employment in petro-physics.

Strategy for Promoting SPWLA Membership

With the help of the chapter Officers, we are working hard at re-establishing a strong local chapter after several years of stagnation. After a very successful quarter of the chapter activity, anticipate continued growth of club membership throughout the next semester. We will continue to advertise club meetings via flyers and email and continue to be a highly visible campus chapter.
