All applicants who are not already AIPG student members will receive a student membership in AIPG.

In addition, I attended, and staffed the AIPG booth at, the recent Northeast Section GSA Meeting held in Burlington, VT from March 17 – 20, 2018. This regional GSA meeting provides tre- mendous opportunities for students to make both oral and poster presenta- tions. Faculty and students from many of the colleges and universities from the northeastern states that apply for our scholarship attended, including several scholarship applicants and recipients – from both this year and last year (see photos #3 and #4 below).

Vapor Intrusion Short Course - pro- vided by AIPG Ohio Section in conjunc- tion with Cox-Colvin and Associates

This short course will cover VI aspects including the physical processes govern- ing subsurface vapor transport and entry into buildings, VI assessment, monitor- ing and mitigation strategies, VI risk analysis, legal aspects, case studies and field demonstrations.

On Thursday, April 19, 2018, the Ohio Section of AIPG held a Spring Social at Yogi’s – Sawmill in Dublin, Ohio. The event was sponsored by ALS Environmental.
