Heritage Auctions’ Craig Kissick Elected President of AAPSAssociation of Applied Paleontological Suppliers has fostered ethical collecting and education for more than four decades
According to its website, AAPS "was organized in 1978 to create a professional association of commercial fossil dealers, collectors, enthusiasts and academic paleontologists for the purpose of promoting ethical collecting practices and cooperative liaisons with researchers, instructors, curators and exhibit managers in the paleontological academic and museum community."
"I am honored to have been elected President of AAPS," Kissick said. "The organization is very important to, and highly respected in, the fossil community, due in large part to its efforts to promote legal and ethical collecting practices for fossils, which are the ultimate historical records of the history of life on earth. I personally, along with Heritage Auctions, have always held the same values when it comes to collecting, and to be recognized with the honor of leading AAPS is something in which I take tremendous pride."
Kissick initially joined Heritage Auctions in 2012 and has been the Director of Nature & Science since 2016, overseeing the Natural History category which covers Fine Minerals, Fossils, Meteorites, Gemstones and Lapidary Art.
He is an active member of the Dallas Paleontological Society (DPS) and the Mineralogical Association of Dallas (MAD), as well as a charter member of the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas.
