Marking the 65th anniversary of the Southeast Section, the meeting will center on the theme "Shaping Continents, Shaping Landscapes, Shaping Policy." The meeting program will showcase the diverse geology of the Southeast with an eye toward shaping policy and the future of the science.


Asheville offers easy access to the world renowned geology of the Blue Ridge, Piedmont, Valley and Ridge, and Cumberland Plateau, with geologic venues ranging from ancient orogenic belts and exotic mineral districts to active landslides, karst landscapes, and unique fossil sites.
