The Geo-Institute (G-I) is a membership organization focused on geoprofessionals and the geo-industry. It was created by the American Society of Civil Engineers in October 1996 as one of ASCE's specialty Institutes.
Our Members, Your Colleagues
The G-I membership consists of more than 11,000 individual members and 65 organizational members, including
- students, and
- organizations who share a mutual interest in protecting the public by enhancing understanding of—and expertise in—the engineering behavior of earth materials.
Our geoprofessionals work to improve the built environment; prevent the loss of life from natural and man-made hazards; and construct sound and reliable engineered facilities and structures.
Geoprofessional Career Development
The G-I combines the talents and perspectives of its members to enhance their career development through:
- scientific journals and practice-oriented publications like GEOSTRATA
- committees and task forces
- networking and coalition-building
- leadership on emerging issues
... offering our members numerous opportunities to learn, grow, give back, and be recognized for their contributions to the geotechnical engineering profession both in the United States and around the world.
The G-I will help you expand your understanding of—and access to—the geo-industry through its many allied organizations, both domestic and international.
