37th Annual Technical Conference

“Building Relationships That Strengthen Our Legacy”

September 5-8, 2018




On behalf of the conference planning committee, organization leadership and membership, it is with great pleasure that I invite you to join us for the 37 th annual conference of the National Association of Black Geoscientists (NABG). This year’s conference will be held in the birthplace of NABG, Houston, TX, and hosted at the Hampton Inn Downtown Houston. The dates for the conference are September 5 – 8, 2018. Our conference planning committee has worked extremely hard to ensure that it will truly be one to remember.

Since its inception, NABG has collaborated with entities in academia, industry and government. These relationships will be on full display at this year’s conference, as there will be representatives present from these various aspects of the Geosciences. Having such a broad base of membership
has allowed NABG to continue to progress, evolve and flourish as an organization over its 37 year history. This is why we have chosen the theme of “Building Relationships that Strengthen Our Legacy.”

Furthering these relationships will allow us to continue to increase the technical diversity of our membership base, provide students with scholarship and employment opportunities and keep professionals informed of technological advances in the Geosciences. Whether you are a student,
technical professional, professor or researcher, there is no question that attending this conference will present you with an opportunity to further your career pursuits in the Geosciences.

If you have any questions at all about conference logistics, please visit our website at nabghouston.com for details, or please feel free to contact us at nabg.us@hotmail.com . Thank you for taking the time to consider this invitation, and we hope to see you in Houston.
