Rebekah Grmela

It’s that time of year! Late each fall, SEPM Staff connects directly with SEPM members to encourage your renewal with our Society. 

As a society, it’s our mission to focus on enriching professionals and students within the field of sedimentary geology. We are dedicated to dissemination and education so that in your professional career, you have opportunities to connect, network, publish and grow.

We’d love to recap all that we have done for you this very strange and stressful year, but the list feels endless! Below are a few highlights, as well as details about your unique member benefits and the actual renewal process: 

  • SEPM Annual Meeting at AAPG Virtual ACE – an excellent SEPM Research Symposium
  • 2020 President’s Awards Ceremony – had to do it Virtually
  • Regular Research Group Gatherings with Deep Water, Clastics, Carbonate and our new Planetary group
  • Council created a DEI Committee to review the issues
  • Conducted a detailed member survey and our first demographic survey of membership
  • Enhanced our social media and website

  • Of course continued to publish articles in JSR, PALAIOS and several new books
