The Geo-Institute presents several prestigious awards every year at the annual Geo-Congress conference. These awards are named after the founding fathers of our profession, men like Terzaghi and Peck. Here are the winners for 2019-2020.
A document entitled “Engineering and Geology Practice Guidelines” has been prepared by the JTFAP or Joint Task Force on Areas of Practice. The JFTAP was comprised of representatives from The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG), the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists (AEG) and the Geo-Institute (G-I) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
