ALERT! ALERT! ALERT!

As of December 2014, The Dallas Geophysical Society website has lost functionality due to a large number of ongoing DDoS attacks. The Board of Directors is working with our current provider to return the site to working order as quickly as possible, as well as exploring options to move to another platform. We apologize for the inconveniences, including our inability to send e-blasts, update webpages/navigation, and other membership related issues. Please know that we will communicate updates and changes as soon as possible. Please spread the word in our stead.

 
Comments from our President

March 1, 2015

I think it is needless to say that our biggest collective concern is the Geophysical Society website. It was so graphically shown to us how dependent we are on its ability to both represent us and our activities, and also on our ability to do business. Our computer folks are frantically working on what we feel will be a functional system, that from the look of it will offer some dramatic improvements. You be the judge in a few weeks.

On that subject, Dan Nietupski from Global Geophysical has agreed to replace Dillon LaFoy as our Web Master. I feel marvelously lucky to be supported by these people. I represent our whole organization with our thanks to Dillon for the amount of work that he has done on our behalf.

As I mentioned in my last letter, with the repair of the website as priority one; priority number two is a slate of officers for the following year. Our fiscal year is from June 1 to May 31 of the following year. The schedule for this process is to announce a slate of officer candidates at the meeting in March. The voting happens in April, and the new slate of officers is announced at the annual meeting in May. My request at this time is for any volunteers for positions on the board of Directors, or for that matter for Committee positions to identify themselves. As the current President Elect, Sarah Reed is the contact person. This whole process is very well documented on our website. The website was working the last time I checked (other than our ability to send out messages).

Our next meeting is on Thursday March 26. By the way, the shift in our dates has been due to maintenance work at Brookhaven. We are fortunate to have Bill Dragoset as the guest speaker. Bill is a name that needs no introduction in our industry. His topic will be multiple removal which has been his specialty for many years. I might add that recent advances in multiple removal was one of the hot topics at the SEG this year.

See you at Brookhaven on Thursday March 26.


Don Macpherson
President 2014-2015
Dallas Geophysical Society
