The Legendary History of AAPG-SC UGM

There is a legendary journey of AAPG UGM SC from its birth until now, but we may need to clarify this story further. The first president was Umi Akhdadiyah (1997). She with the 1997ers and Department officials (he was Mr. Wartono Rahardjo; who became the Faculty Advisor before Mr. Sarju Winardi) was the founder of the UGM AAPG SC along with another university SC in AAPG Joint Conference in Bali on 2000.

AAPG UGM SC at that time was one of the main founders of SC in Indonesia. At that time, we had a lot of Visiting Geologist programmed run, such as Peter Lloyd and the 2 days Wellsite geologist course by Shofiyuddin Toha which utilized the Micropaleontology labs to observe some microfossil samples.

Umi Akhdadiyah then is replaced by Ari (1998). After that we had a quite long vacuum period due to our very busy schedule with very limited manpower, after which the Steering Committee from Jakarta led by Chuck Caughey and team (Aditya Syailendra and Guruh Didi) questioned about our SC activities, we (the 1999ers and the 2000ers) then re-established the AAPG SC organizational structures and (un-luckily) appointed me as the President ad-interim. We didn’t do much programme at that time because our primary concern was to rebuild and strenghten the organization. This then led to some joint short course with UPN SC for Chuck & Yusak Setiawan’s short course and AAPG Visiting Geologist programmed (Rima Petrossian, the AAPG-DEG President) and the Attribute Seismic Course by CNOOC. Those then followed by one the next agenda which elect Saufi Handri as the next AAPG SC President.

A lot of success stories of AAPG UGM SC during the leadership of Saufi Handri, Julianta Panjaitan, and Zeindra Ernando. In Julianta period, our Student Chapter increased the activity and it was our time for rebuilt up. The success of Julianta’s Leadership was proven by winning L. Austin Weeks Grant 2006. In his period, our Student Chapter was believed by AAPG to help them to gave aid for victims of Yogyakarta earthquake. This event was one of the social activity of AAPG UGM SC, and we really proud of it. Next, Zeindra period, in this time, there was a big change of law of Indonesian Student Chaper. These changes was decided at Seapex 2006. By these changes, this was the reason why Zeindra Ernando led about 1,5 years. Zeindra and his officer attended IPA Convention 2006 at Jakarta Convention Centre. This was one of way to made network with other Student Chapter in Indonesia. There were a lot of workshops, courses, seminars under his leadership.

And under the leadership of Rani Evelyn, We are still be the best. Rani and her officer attended SEAPEX at University of Padjajaran, Bandung. And the result is they got best poster in SEAPEX. In year 2009, the good performance of the team make us won L.Austine Weeks Grant and Honorable Mention on AAPG Annual Conference’s Outstanding Student Chapter Award.

Cindy Dhevayani Savitry was the next AAPG UGM SC President after Rani, and the third Female President. In the period of her leadership, AAPG UGM SC had some big challenge, the biggest challenge is losing the professional environment in AAPG UGM SC, but with patience and courage, AAPG UGM SC can pass them all. In this period of the leadership, along with the period of biggest challenge, AAPG UGM SC got the biggest accomplishment in the history, AAPG UGM SC get L.Austine Weeks Grant, get 2nd in the Outstanding Student Chapter Award Against 206 student chapter worldwide, get the “most active SC Award in Asia Pacific Region”, and sent one of two asia pacific representative in AAPG Annual Leadership Conference. Also on this period, Mr. Salahuddin Hussein was elected as New Faculty Advisor.
