Americas Chapter - Overview
To carry out its mission and vision, IAGC has divided the globe into three separate regions, and it manages its affairs through Chapters which cover each region. These Chapters are: Americas, Asia/ Pacific, and Europe, Africa and Middle East (EAME). Each Chapter is governed by a chairman, who comes from a core member company.
Some issues or topics are more global in nature, spanning more than one Chapter. As these global issues often benefit from coordination across the Chapters and from the attention of the global business managers, IAGC also works through a number of Global Committees.
The Americas Chapter is staffed out of IAGC's Headquarters office.
Chapter Chairman: Jim White, Discovery Acquisition Services on behalf of Geokinetics
Chapter Vice Chairman: currently vacant
