Membership Committee

At AEG’s Annual Conference in Portland, Oregon in September 2023, the Executive Committee approved the formation of a new operational committee - Membership Committee (“MemCom”). The main goal of MemCom is to increase membership at AEG, as well as to retain the existing membership. The committee chairs are Dr. Visty Dalal and Rick Kolb.

The committee chairs are grateful to Martha Whitney, Director of the International Region, and Curt Schmidt, Chair, Chapter Support Committee, for their willingness to join ‘MemCom’ in our common goal to bring great benefits of AEG to its new members. More volunteers are needed in MemCom so that together we can pursue our goals of increasing the AEG membership and enhancing and promoting member benefits.

AEG promotes the value that environmental and engineering geologists bring to each project. We advocate on behalf of our members to engineering groups, other geoscience organizations, and local and national legislative leaders. AEG also supports members' efforts to establish, enhance, or defend professional licensure through funding, communication, and collaborative efforts.

Membership benefits at AEG include but are not limited to:

  • Access to a robust network of applied geoscience professionals
  • Registration discounts for Annual Meeting and additional forums, webinars, and symposiums
  • Access to AEG (and IAEG) publications (Insider, AEG News, and E&EG Journal, the Bulletin)
  • Continuing education credits applicable at state, national, and international levels
  • Participation/leadership opportunities in numerous operational and technical committees
  • Access to the AEG Job Board, etc.
  • AEG members can join IAEG (International Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment) when they sign up for or renew their membership with AEG.
