AIPG Ohio Section Promotes and Supports the Geologic Profession in Ohio

The primary goal of the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) Ohio Section is to be the principal advocate for geology and the geologic profession in Ohio, and to promote high ethical standards and continuing career development for our members. In addition, the Ohio Section of AIPG functions as a liaison between Members and the geologic community, state and local government, and general public. If you are a geologist or geology student in the state of Ohio, we encourage you to seek the qualifications for full or student membership and professional certification in AIPG.
