AEG Member Benefits: Section Meetings
Section meetings are the most tangible, relevant, and impactful of the benefits of AEG membership. A section meeting can act as a vehicle for continuing education on a familiar topic or a chance to learn something new. A section meeting can also be your connection with others working in your field, a time to socialize and develop a network of colleagues, and even a place to meet your next employer. Many members have found employment through their connection with AEG and attendance at section meetings.

For those passionate about their profession, a section meeting can invigorate and motivate a person on many levels. All geo-professionals and students should be encouraged to attend AEG section meetings for the immediate benefits they provide!
