Lifelong Learning with the Earth Science Community

GSA's Annual Meeting attracts more than 6,000 attendees across all disciplines to participate in a high-energy science exchange. Presentations span a broad range of cutting-edge earth science topics, while field trips, K-12 workshops, and Exhibit Hall booths offer something for everyone. GSA Section Meetings present similar experiences at a more intimate regional level.

Join any number of GSA's 18 Specialty Divisions for more focused opportunities. Selections include Geoscience Education, Planetary Geology, Structural Geology and Tectonics, and History and Philosophy of Geology, to name a few.

Visit some of the most spectacular geological sites in the world. As a GSA K-12 Teacher member, you'll be invited on Teacher GeoVentures, and gain first-hand field knowledge to take back to your classroom.

GeoCorps™ America offers members a unique opportunity to apply for paid positions during summer break, working on exciting field projects in a National Park, National Forest, or with the BLM.

Attend just ONE GSA function and the member savings covers your annual dues.
