The AAPG Foundation Trustees approved nominations for the Trustee Associate Service Award for 2012 and 2013. A committee assembled for this particular purpose submitted Jack Martin for the 2012 award and Ken Masters for the 2013 award. The reason both awardees were named this year is because the award was established last year but it wasn’t until this year that the selection process was established.
