Mission of the Geo-Institute

The core purpose of the Geo-Institute is to advance the geoprofessional community.

 


G-I Vision for 2018

  • The G-I will be a more member-centric association. The G-I Board of Governors and staff will connect decision-making to the needs and wants of the membership so that the G-I is more responsive to the changing needs of the profession. The G-I Board of Governors and staff will be closer to the membership and better understand what they need/want and how best to serve them.
  • The G-I will be the primary source of career development support for geoprofessionals. The G-I will be the go-to place for knowledge and career development opportunities for geoprofessionals. G-I will be the key source for continuing education and networking.
  • The G-I will build collaboration among groups serving our profession. The G-I will lead and facilitate greater cooperation between related professional associations and other groups to better serve the geoprofessional community. The G-I will lead the profession on important technical and professional issues by developing consensus amongst stakeholder groups in the geoprofession.
  • The G-I will develop a stronger business model. The G-I will develop a business model that supports revenue growth by involving more of the membership in G-I products (e.g., conference attendance, continuing education, publications) and by developing alternative revenue sources that fit within the G-I mission.
