January 2010 Newsletter
A message from the President
I hope you all had a good break over the Christmas period and that the New Year is proving to be a good one.
2009 was a very successful year for the LPS. Membership was up, attendance at our seminars was the highest for many years, and we got some very favourable feedback from seminar attendees. Last year’s success is due to all the hard work of the LPS committee and speakers. The committee offer their time for free and year on year do an excellent job of running the LPS, many thanks to you all. Special thanks must go to Jonathan Lean for his sterling work as President for the last two years and to Patrick Crossouard for his many years of service including a stint as President.
As we pass the winter solstice and the days start to lengthen I like to think of January as the start of the cycle of renewal. With this in mind now is a good time to renew your LPS membership. Please see attached for a membership form, please complete and forward to Victoria Baines: firstname.lastname@example.org .
January is always a busy time in the LPS calendar. On Monday the 25th January, 12.30 we will be holding the annual half day ‘New Technology Seminar’. The seminar is free to all and will run from 12.30pm to 6.30pm at the Geological Society. It is a forum for service companies to show-off their new tools, analytical techniques and software. The program of nine talks is attached to this newsletter.
The LPS University Open day will be held on the Wednesday 27th January at Manchester University. The University Open Day is our showcase on the world of petrophysics to the next generation of subsurface professionals. Speakers from Badley Ashton, BG Group, Exxon Mobil, Leicester University and Perenco are confirmed, with more planned. If you wish to provide a booth or sponsor the event please contact Jeremy Farrow, email@example.com .
Hope to see you at one of these events.
