Getting Involved with AEG

Whether you are a new or longstanding member of the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists, we hope that you have found your membership valuable. We also hope that you will consider becoming more involved with our organization. There are many ways you can give back to AEG through our Operational Committees and Technical Working Groups, at least one of which is sure to fall into an area in which you have an interest and expertise.

Our committees and working groups are integral to advancing the mission of AEG. We could not exist without them! The members and chairs who volunteer to be part of these groups also find the experience to be very rewarding.

Reasons to serve on an AEG committee or working group:

  • It’s an excellent way to network and increase your industry contacts.
  • It increases your professional profile and is a great resume-builder.
  • It’s an excellent learning experience and facilitates greater expertise in a given subject area.
  • It improves your leadership and public speaking skills.
  • It allows you to have an influence on decision-making and promote initiatives that are important to you.
