Panel Discussion: "Whatever possessed you to become a geologist?" or"How and why I became a Geoscientist, and what that decision led to."

The theme of the next meeting will be the interview of three distinguished geologists, John Berry, Pat Dickerson, and Ernie Lundelius. The discussion will center around the same topics as were on the member survey that we conducted at the last meeting.

Specifically, we will be asking them about: 1) when they knew they wanted to geologists, 2) what about geology appealed to them, 3) who influenced them the most, 4) what they would have become, if not geologists, and 5) what their best jobs were. We will also be releasing the results of the member survey covering the same questions.
