Associated Societies

GSA has a long tradition of collaborating with a wide range of partners in pursuit of our mutual goals to advance the geosciences, enhance the professional growth of society members, and promote the geosciences in the service of humanity. GSA works with other organizations on many programs and services. As the Society looks to the future, it aims to build strong, meaningful partnerships with societies and organizations across the country and around the world in service to members and the larger geoscience community.

National and international societies with consistent aims and missions of advancing the geosciences and/or science in general are invited to affiliate with GSA as Associated Societies. For further information, or if your organization's contact person has changed, please contact GSA's Associate Director of Scientific Integrity & Strategic Partnerships, Nan Stout, at or GSA's Executive Director and CEO, Melanie Brandt, at
