The Jakarta Regional PUG

Please welcome the Jakarta Regional PUG to the network of Regional PUGs.  The formation of the new Jakarta Regional PUG is the 12th regional PUG and is a very exciting addition to the PUG Community.  The PUG has always recognized the need for GIS Users and Professionals to gather in the city or region they live in to learn, socialize and discuss petroleum topics most relevant to their local area.  Having this regional PUG in one of the largest cities in the world will provide an opportunity for GIS users and professionals to work collaboratively, helping to fulfill the mission statement.

What’s it like being on the Steering Committee?

Being a part of the Steering Committee is a challenging but rewarding experience.  You will have the opportunity to influence the direction of the PUG, improve our global community, help plan the Esri Petroleum GIS Conference, work with other passionate GIS professionals… the list goes on!

Steering Committee members come from all aspects of the Petroleum GIS community and any location.  There is a monthly meeting that committee members are expected to attend (in person or by phone) and there is work that needs to be done.  Being on the committee is not a free ride but the rewards are so worth the effort.

Elections are open to any PUG member, regardless of location, company, title, etc.  Voting is open to all members of the PUG Community and will be conducted online.
