The Geo-Institute has more than 60 local Chapters through the United Sates. Our Chapters are part of ASCE's Sections & Branches.

Advance your career: join your local Chapter.

When you're an active member of your local Chapter, you can:

  • connect with your local peers, building your professional network and enduring friendships
  • benefit from local professional development programs
  • develop your leadership skills working on Chapter projects and committees
  • focus on local issues that impact your workplace

Grow your local group: become a G-I Chapter.

If you're part of an existing ASCE geotechnical group, or want to start a new local group, it's easy to affiliate with the G-I as a Chapter. There's no cost to your group, and many benefits:

  • National exposure for your group and your programs
  • Increased member participation
  • Opportunities to host special programs
  • Sharing of ideas and best practices with your fellow Chapters
  • Support from the rest of the G-I, including the Local Involvement Committee (LIC) and other Chapters
