SAIEG/AEG Conference: 'Life After Mining — Enviro-Geotechnical Answers to Development, Surface Stability, Seismicity, Water and Air Pollution' | March 7-8
AEG
AEG will team up with the South African Institute for Engineering & Environmental Geologists March 7-8 for a conference in Sandton, Gauteng, South Africa. The purpose of the conference is to provide an "enviro-geotechnical" look at seismic, water and air pollution issues with a view to provide "lessons learned" to practicing environmental and engineering geologists, engineers, architects and town planners, as well as government agencies involved in the planning for and the management of so-called "mining land."

Advocacy Committee searching for individual advocacy efforts
AEG
One of the most important goals of AEG's Advocacy Committee is to advocate for not only AEG but also our profession. Recently, we've begun to think on the small-scale advocacy efforts that our members do, unheralded but because they have a passion for our profession. We have begun efforts to catalog these individual efforts. We will soon send out requests to all section chairs asking for a list of advocacy efforts their section members have undertaken.

AEG Research Fund
AEG
The purpose of the Research Fund is to provide financial support for small research projects that advance the science and application of environmental and engineering geology. The Fund will expend up to $5,000 each year for proposed research if one or more projects are approved by a review committee and recommended to the Board for funding.

The proposed research must be completed within one year unless special provisions are agreed to by the participant and the Board. A written report on the results of the research or a progress report on continuing research will be required to fulfill the terms of the research grant. The grants may be used in conjunction with grants from other professional organizations to support larger projects if warranted by the specific project requirements. The intent is to encourage individuals to propose on research that is not generally funded by other institutions or agencies.
