ASTM Committee D35 on Geosynthetics was formed in 1984. D35 meets twice each year, in January and June, with up to 100 members participating in 45 meetings over three days. The Committee, with a membership of approximately 330 members, currently has jurisdiction of over 155 approved standards that are published in the Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Volume 4.13.
The Federation of International Geo-Engineering Societies (FedIGS) is a collaborative forum within which learned societies or associations involved in engineering with, on, or in geo-materials can meet and interact. The purpose of the Federation is to facilitate interaction among the member societies, explore opportunities to promote their common interests and provide a unified response to common issues through effective collective actions that are more effective than individual responses of the members.
The International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage (ICID), established in 1950 is the leading scientific, technical and not-for-profit Non-Governmental Organization (NGO). ICID, through its network of professionals spread across more than a hundred countries, has facilitated sharing of experiences and transfer of water management technology for over half-a-century. ICID supports capacity development, stimulates research and innovation and strives to promote policies and programs to enhance sustainable development of irrigated agriculture through a comprehensive water management framework.
The ISSMGE is the pre-eminent professional body representing the interests and activities of Engineers, Academics and Contractors all over the world that actively participate in geotechnical engineering.
As a truly global organization, the ISSMGE provides a focus for professional leadership to more than 80 Member Societies and over 18,000 individual members.
