GSA Geographic Sections

All members can affiliate with one Geographic Section for free. Did you know that you can join multiple Sections?

GSA's six Geographic Sections have their own governance boards and organize scientific meetings in their region of North America. These smaller meetings attract many geoscience students and provide outstanding learning and networking opportunities closer to home. Sections offer travel grants not only to their own meetings but to the GSA Annual Meeting as well. Many Sections offer research grants, too. Click on the "About ..." links below the logos to learn more about your Section.

I realized driving back from the 2017 GSA South-Central Section Meeting that this two-day meeting was something like a little university that only was open for a couple of days each year, sharing ideas, and mentoring students. These two-day meetings are the best!”
