New Insights Logo CONVENTION

February 4, 2009

Dear Sponsor/Advertiser:

The Pacific Sections AAPG, SEPM, and SEG will be presenting a joint technical conference at the Marriott Ventura Beach Hotel on May 4 and 5, 2009. Several Field Trips and Continuing Education Courses will be held both before and after the conference rounding out a full five days of activities and events. The conference is an important venue for petroleum, academic, engineering, and environmental geologic professionals to exchange technologies and geologic understanding through technical presentations, forums, exhibits, and informal discussions with vendors and fellow professionals.

Thank you for considering the benefits of supporting our efforts to provide enhanced value to the attendees through your sponsorship of the meeting. There is no better place to network for new business opportunities or re-connect with old partners than one of our regional conventions. This year's meeting in Ventura, a beautiful city on the sparkling Pacific at the southern tip of California's Central Coast, is expected to draw in an estimated 500 professionals, exhibitors, and students.

Please consider a generous level of sponsorship. Sponsorship levels established to recognize sponsors are:

Sponsorship includes the posting of company logo and/or name on the Convention Website, Announcements, Program, Signage and Banners at Convention events and activities, and special mention during the Convention introduction. Diamond, Ruby, and Emerald sponsorship levels also provide for a company description paragraph to be printed in the convention program (see attachment) and option to be exclusively recognized at the Welcome Reception, Luncheons, Coffee Bars, Speakers Breakfast, or any other event of your choice. Please contact us if you have other specific sponsorship requests (i.e. attendee gift, drink tickets, etc.).

Advertisements in the Convention Announcement and Program are separate from Convention Sponsorship. Advertisements are offered at four levels:

Sponsorships and Advertisers must be confirmed by February 20, 2009 for recognition in the Convention Announcement. Sponsorships and Advertisers coming later will be acknowledged in the Convention Website, Program, and at the venue itself. A Sponsorship Sign-up Form is available for printing. Also a listing of Sponsors and Advertisers from the 2008 PS-AAPG Convention is available for your review, as well as examples of two of last year's advertisements. Further information about the 2009 Annual Meeting can be found at If you have any other questions, please contact either of the Sponsorship Co-Chairs.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2009 Annual Meeting.
