AEG Foundation fundraiser needs your help
AEG
The 56th AEG Annual Meeting is just around the corner, and while you're finalizing your travel plans and putting your talks together, don't forget to pitch in with your donation to the AEG Foundation. The Foundation is getting close to reaching its $1 million goal, and every dollar you contribute gets the Foundation that much closer and makes the future of environmental and engineering geology that much stronger.

AEG wants to know how you conduct public outreach
AEG
The AEG — through various committees, including Strategic Planning, Advocacy and Membership & Messaging, to name a few — is seeking information from our members about what you do to conduct public outreach. Have you helped scouts get a belt loop or merit badge? Have you spoken to K-12 students about environmental and engineering geology? Do you present to university or college students? Have you spoken to other associations — like the Rotary Club — about what you do?

The benefits of sharing your stories with us are obvious. First, we shouldn't be shy about what we do or why we do it. Second, we will summarize all of these activities and make this information available to all of our committees and sections so they can see what everyone is doing out there to advocate for our profession. Next, we may ask for your permission to feature your story in print, be it in an upcoming issue of the Insider, the AEG NEWS or on our website. Take a moment to compose your thoughts and send them to Serin Bussell.

Help bring AEG benefits to students
AEG
While AEG boasts over 1,000 student members, only 29 student chapters currently exist to support our future professionals. To address this issue, the AEG Student & Young Professional Support Committee (SYPSC) has begun a University Outreach program to promote AEG and establish new student chapters. Increasing the number of student chapters will help students benefit from increased exposure to professional development and networking opportunities, access to scholarships and notifications of AEG news, events and programs.

Sinkholes: When the Earth opens up
The Atlantic
The ground beneath our feet, our cars and, our buildings, appears to be incredibly solid. But rarely, that solid ground can simply open up without warning, dropping whatever was above into an unpredictably deep hole. Sinkholes can be anywhere from a few feet wide and deep to 2,000 feet in diameter and depth.
