Current Meetings

Future Section Meetings

Looking for Section Meeting Hosts

GSA Section meetings are excellent venues for interdisciplinary science. They are an important hub for discussing and presenting current research and for networking with professionals and students. They provide an excellent opportunity for students to attend and participate in technical sessions, field trips, and short courses close to their schools.

The health of the Sections depends on many willing hands. GSA Headquarters now offers significant assistance with the logistical responsibilities for Section meetings, so chairs are able to spend more time developing the scientific program.

If you would like to bring a GSA Section meeting to your location, please refer to the chart below for current openings and take a moment to contact the appropriate Section Secretary to discuss what hosting a meeting entails.
