Organizational Goals

Mission Statement

The Florida Association of Professional Geologists, a Section of AIPG, was formed to protect, enhance and promote the Professional Geology profession within the state of Florida.

Strategies and Goals

  • To increase membership to a level that represents an overwhelming industry majority by advocating new membership and its benefits, retaining current members, fostering efficient communication and offering incentives for membership.
  • To seek equitable treatment of Professional Geologists by the legislature and any other governmental body involved with matters of interest to the profession. We seek to monitor and report on all activities by our state government and profession-related agencies, departments and allied organizations.
  • To create an efficient and effective communication system, including the website, to inform members about important state information and to educate the public about the industry, including outreach and events.
  • To evaluate and enhance the financial strength of the Organization by monitoring and regulating association expenses and ensuring the highest levels of financial responsibility.
  • To join forces with local and regional chapters to organize meetings, study groups and field trips with local geological societies, along with getting involved with local schools to foster earth science education and the importance of our profession. We also seek to create a network of regional leaders, including support staff and volunteers, to foster networking in their respective areas.
