The GCAGS Statesmanship Award was created in 2007 to honor Alfredo E. Guzmán for his lead role in the expansion of the Gulf Coast Association of Geological Societies to include the Asociación Mexicana de Geólogos Petroleros. He was recognized for his statesmanship in achieving that important step toward unity of the geological community surrounding the Gulf of Mexico. Although Señor Guzmán remains the only recipient of the Statesmanship Award, and circumstances similar to those of his achievements might occur only rarely, the award could indeed be given in the future to someone whose outstanding accomplishments within the framework of the GCAGS can be categorized as statesmanship.
