Chapter Formation

Back to homepage

The IGS Chapters are the premier vehicle through which the IGS interacts with the geosynthetics industry, helping it reach out to and influence the larger engineering field. Chapter activities include the organization of major conferences and exhibits, such as the 10th International Conference on Geosynthetics (September 2014, Germany) and its predecessors in Brazil, Japan, France, and the USA. The chapters also coordinate and schedule presentations of focused seminars at universities, government offices, and private companies.

Chapters create the opportunity for the IGS membership to reach out, teach, and communicate; and they are the catalyst for many advances in geosynthetics. Participation in an IGS Chapter brings manufacturers, engineers, researchers, professors, contractors, and designers together in an environment which directly advances the industry by informing and influencing people who are not familiar with our discipline.
