Previous annual meetings
Meetings held by the Association and Chapters include dis-cussions of professional practice issues, social functions, and field trips. Some activities are held jointly with other professional engineering or geological societies. Represen-tatives of Chapters participate in the work of the commit-tees of the Association. Further information on Chapter activities may be obtained by contacting Chapter officers.
Meetings of the Association are held annually. The Annual Meeting, as generally scheduled, consists of a corporate business session, technical and professional practice ses-sions at which individuals present papers, short courses, field courses, guest activities, banquet with awards, and symposia at which invited speakers present talks related to the subject selected for the meeting.
The first meeting, on October 11, 1958, in Sacramento, CA, was restricted to essential business leading to permanent establishment of the organization. Succeeding meetings have been held as follows:

8 AEG 2020 Annual Report /2021 Directory March 2021
s I began my tenure as AEG President in Sep-tember 2019, I had a number of goals
that I planned to achieve during my one year in office. One of my main goals was to visit as many Chapter events as possible to ensure that the Chapter officers and Chapter members felt connected and supported by the Association. But as John Lennon said, “Life happens while we are making other plans.”
Chapter Meetings As I write this Annual Report (January 2021), due to the coron-avirus disease (COVID-19) health risks, all in-person scheduled AEG Chapter meetings have been cancelled. There have been no in-person Chapter meetings since March 2020. I support this approach, with our members’ health and safety as a top priority. As such, Chapter-level activities are currently being conducted via “virtual” webinars. In addition, a large number of Association-level technical webinars have been held and are also planned for the forceable future. I hope that you are taking advantage of these webinars, as this is a great way for mem-bers to stay connected with our profession and with AEG. As an added perk, attendees also earn professional development hours toward Professional Geoscientist or Professional Engineer CEU licensure requirements.
Before the pandemic changed most of our travel plans, I did have the opportunity to attend several AEG Chapter meetings. I vis-ited and gave presentations in Texas in October 2019, Seattle in November 2019, Portland in November 2019, and San Francisco, Fresno, Anchorage, and Fairbanks in January 2020. Thank you to all AEG Chapter officers and members for making me feel wel-come and for your commitment to AEG! Unfortunately, any travel plans for Chapter visits after February 2020 had to be cancelled.
Annual Meetings In mid-May 2020, the Governor of Oregon mandated that no large gatherings may occur in the state through September 2020. Since our 2020 Annual Meeting was planned to be held in Portland in September 2020, the AEG Executive Council had no choice but to move the 2020 Annual Meeting to a virtual format. The dates were the same, September 16–18, but occurred in an online format. A similar agenda to our in-person meeting was planned, with an opening session with a keynote speaker, tech-nical sessions, poster sessions, an AEG Awards event, and a business meeting. The three-day event was very well attended, by both students and professionals, with a large international attendance as well. Because of the success of the virtual 2020 Annual Meeting, plans are underway to make the 2021 Annual Meeting a combination of both an in-person and online event.
We moved the in-person Portland Annual Meeting that was planned for 2020 to September 2023. This meeting will be held at the Marriott Portland Downtown Waterfront Hotel, the same location that was planned for the 2020 meeting. San
Antonio, Texas, is the location scheduled for the 2021 Annual Meeting, and Las Vegas is the location selected for the 2022 Annual Meeting.
AEG Management As of March 1, 2020, AEG contracted with J&M
Business Solutions as our new Association Manage-ment Company (AMC). As our new AMC, J&M in
Brunswick, Ohio, is now the AEG headquarters. Our Association Manager is Sheri Maskow. You may be wondering what does our AMC actually do? Our AMC runs the day-to-day business of AEG. This means maintaining an office, phone and contact person for any AEG inquiries, in addition to man-aging the day-to-day operations of AEG. Our AMC also man-ages our finances, membership database and website, and oversees our operational committees and helps move our strategic plan forward. If you have any inquiries, you may con-tact Sheri Maskow at [email protected].
One of AEG’s main goals is to promote the value of applied geology for the public good. This is relevant when threats to our Professional Geoscientists Licensure occur (as happened in Texas last year). At the AEG 2019 Mid-year Board of Directors (BOD) meeting, the board approved budgeting for a Legislative Tracking System (LTS). The LTS was up and running as of November 1, 2019. The LTS tracks proposed legislative bills in all 50 states that may have some potential effect on geo-sciences licensure and is available to AEG representatives in all states. The goal is to become aware of any potential damaging bills early in the process, so that counterattack plans can be implemented quickly. Several bills had been flagged as a poten-tial threat and are or were being monitored. Due to the success of the LTS, the AEG BOD voted at the 2020 Annual BOD meeting to extend the contract for an additional year.
AEG’s new and improved website was launched on December 9, 2019. The new website looks great, is more streamlined, and should be easier to navigate to find the content that you are looking for. Thank you to Sarah Kalika, Dale Andrews and Kara Jacobacci for your work on getting the new website launched!
Membership Student membership is free, and our plans are that it will stay that way for many years to come! Students are the future of our organization, and our intent, of course, is for students to become full members when they graduate and find gainful employment (hopefully in the Geosciences profession). In addition, students make great volunteers, since they are at the forefront of the latest technology, the latest trends, AND the latest ways to com-municate among their peers. I encourage every member to invite students to your next Chapter event and I encourage students to get involved and volunteer!
Finally, in order to improve member engagement with our younger professional and student members, the Executive
THE PRESIDENT’S REPORT
A Year Like No Other Cynthia Palomares, AEG President 2019–20
Committee is working with Headquarters to enhance our social media platforms. Did you know that AEG currently has a number of social media platforms that you can engage with to see what’s going on with our profession and within AEG? We currently are on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn. In addition, a new Facebook group (different from a page) has been set up to encourage more interaction between our members. You can post a variety of items to this fb group and I encourage you to share information about projects you are working on, cool geology sites that you have visited, or other general information that may be relevant. A social media policy has also been developed for Chapter-level social media platforms. If your Chapter currently does not use social media platforms to communicate with members, look for changes in the near future.
In addition to enhanced social media, AEG has also initiated publishing of blogs. AEG blogs are posted on the AEG website approximately twice monthly and include topics such has “Why is Licensure important to an Applied Geoscientist?” and “What
coursework do I need to become marketable as an Applied Geoscientist?” I encourage you to go to our website to view the various past blogs that have been published.
In closing, as I transition out of my role as AEG President, I would like to take this opportunity to thank AEG for this role and for your trust and support in me. It was my great honor to serve on the AEG Executive Council for the last four years and as President for the last year. This is a very exciting time for AEG as we transition our vision and goals to the demands of the future and the new normal. We have done a great job of lis-tening to and meeting our members’ needs over the last year, but we still have work to do. Thank you to the many volunteers for your part in moving our vision forward, and I can’t wait to see what we will achieve together over the next year with William Godwin as AEG President!
Thank you for your continued commitment to AEG! If you have any comments or questions or would like to volunteer, please contact me at [email protected].
2019–20 ANNUAL REPORT OF THE ASSOCIATION
2020 was a year of many transitions and developments in the realm of AEG communications and publications. In March, J&M Business Solutions became AEG’s new Association Management Company. J&M’s Sheri Maskow and Becky McWilliam have performed admirably in their new role with AEG despite the chal-lenge of 2020’s 100-year pandemic event. In April, Theodoros “Ted” Toskos volunteered to serve as Co-Editor of AEG’s Geology of the Cities of the World (COW) project. The COW series is a wonderful benefit of AEG member-ship, and all 27 COW issues—from Albuquerque to Seattle—are available to AEG members through AEG’s COW webpage (https://www.aegweb.org/geology-of-the-cities-of-the-world). The webpage has been revised so that issues can be downloaded with just one click. Ted has been working diligently on several projects including updates to previously published manuscripts. A co-editor to assist Ted in this interesting endeavor is still needed. Please contact AEG’s Publications Manager Maddie German ([email protected]) if you would like to volunteer for the position.
In April, an AEG Facebook group was created as a fun means for AEG members to communicate with one another. Since its debut, members have posted photos of themselves working from home and shared a variety of posts including geohazard photos, webinar announcements, news of developments within the profes-sion, geology-related articles, cartoons, music, and poetry.
In May, the Communications Committee finalized AEG’s Social Media Strategy, which covers Association and Chapter-level media platforms. The strategy is available through AEG’s Member Resources webpage and provides guidance on plat-forms, how to get started, content to be posted, and sugges-tions for creating content. July saw the debut of blogs on AEG’s
website, yet another initiative of 2019–20 President Cynthia Palomares.If you would like to share your experiences as a geologist with fellow AEG mem-bers by participating as a guest blogger, please contact Cynthia at [email protected].
In November, Isaac Pope joined me as Co-chair of the Communications Committee. Isaac has
provided invaluable support and assistance on many items including preparing meeting minutes, updating AEG
News’ style guide, reviewing AEG’s website, and sharing ideas on ways to improve AEG’s communications and publications. Isaac is a prolific writer and contributed an outstanding article on the Cascade Volcanoes in the Winter 2020 issue and will be sharing an article on Washington’s Layser Cave in the Spring 2021 issue of AEG News. More recently, Isaac has assumed the role of Book Review Editor for Environmental & Engineering Geoscience. Abdul Shakoor continues his dedicated service as AEG Editor of this joint publication of AEG and GSA, while Eric Peterson is the new GSA Editor, replacing Brian Katz, whose three-year term ended January 1, 2021.
In November 2020, Visty Dalal announced he would be stepping down as AEG News’ Acquisitions Editor, a position he’s held since October 2019. He received a 2020 AEG Out-standing Volunteer Award during the Virtual Annual Meeting for his vision and work on AEG News and for striving to make it more beneficial to members. Personally, it has been a pleasure to work with Visty, and he will be sorely missed. Visty is joining Renee Wawczak and Curt Schmidt as an AEG Strategic Initia-tives Coordinator. I am looking forward to collaborating with Martha Whitney, a geologist residing in Montpelier, France, who has volunteered to step into the Acquisitions Editor position.

Financial Report for Fiscal Year 2020 Maddie German, AEG Treasurer 2019–20
THE TREASURER’S REPORT
he past year was a re-building year for AEG on many fronts. Financially, we faced several
new obstacles as society moved online, however, AEG stepped up to the challenge with webinars and a virtual annual meeting.
Despite the roller coaster ride of the 2020 market, the Association continues to maintain one year’s worth of operating expenses in our Treasurer’s reserve fund. This money is invested in conservative funds to help withstand the market volatility. At the end of 2020 (December), our balance in the Treasurer’s Reserve is approximately $424,274 (which grew by $46,754 from December 2019). Our Fidelity investments, which hold the Treasurer’s Reserve, have been performing well over the life of the fund. Additionally, the UBS investment is holding steady at $106,021 (December).
The 2020 Annual Meeting was originally planned for Port-land, Oregon. However, due to the global pandemic it was rescheduled in the same fantastic venue for September 2023. Instead of the in-person meeting this year, AEG hosted its first, fully virtual Annual Meeting. The virtual meeting was an over-whelming success, thanks to the Virtual Meeting Contingency Committee headed by AEG Meetings Manager Heather Clark. The committee was formed in May to determine meeting options as the COVID-19 situation developed around the world.
Typically, AEG plans their annual meetings to achieve a sur-plus of $25,000. However, the circumstances in 2020 allowed for a minimum, break-even budget. Fortunately, AEG is antici-pating a surplus around $7,000, even after paying the con-tracted Meeting Manager fee and the expenses for the virtual meeting. Four hundred eighty-three people attended the meeting, including international attendees from South Africa, Nigeria, Australia, Ghana, France, Hong Kong, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Panama, Philippines, India, and Canada. The special event happy hour, poster ses-sion and student workshops, among other interactive activities, were also well attended. Many members enjoyed great conver-sations “in the chat box” throughout the meeting. A huge thanks to AEG’s Virtual Annual Meeting sponsors who helped make the meeting a success.
Membership revenue for 2020 was $191,888, down slightly from $193,843 in 2019. While this is a substantial drop (as seen in similar professional societies), the dues-paying membership numbers dropped as well with (as of November 30th) approximately 1,213 full (three-year+ professional) mem-bers for 2020, down from 1,253 members in 2019. There were increases in teacher members up to 55 in 2020 from 30 in 2019, and post-graduate members up to 87 in 2020 from 31 in 2019. These numbers do not reflect student members, who receive the member benefits but do not pay dues.
2020 was a wild year, therefore, a lot of uncertainty is tied to membership renewals for 2021. Considering online Associa-tion and Chapter webinars, the AEG News and Environmental &
Engineering Geoscience journal, and member resources on the website, AEG continues to offer numerous ben-efits to its members, until we can resume in-person meetings and conferences. Growing the Association by continuously striving to improve its services to its membership, the environmental and engineering
geology communities, and the public continues to be a goal and focus for AEG.
AEG ended 2020 with a surplus of $45,194. This is attributed to a successful annual meeting and significantly reduced Association expenses.
During the first quarter of 2020, AEG began working with a new association management company (J&M). They have proven themselves throughout 2020, going above and beyond to ensure AEG’s financial house was in perfect working order. They employed a bookkeeper whose diligence and attention to detail were essential to rebuilding AEGs financial records.
The 2020–21 budget is similar to the 2019–20 budget with another projected deficit, due largely to uncertainty related to in-person professional forums and membership concerns carried over from the 2020 pandemic. Planned professional

ith the COVID-19 pandemic preventing members from interacting in person, a
large focus in 2020 was to get AEG more involved on the various social platforms. AEG is now active on Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook. In addition to the Facebook page, there is also a Facebook group where members can connect with one another to ask questions and discuss various topics. If you haven’t already, please be sure to start following!
Another important benefit that began in 2020 was the AEG Blog. Not only does this provide another source of information for our members, but it also increases AEG’s online presence to encourage new memberships. Posts are published one to two times per month. Guest bloggers are always welcome; please reach out to Headquarters if you would like to get involved.
Many of you attended the first ever virtual AEG Annual Meeting in September. We look forward to another great conference in 2021 where we hope to see you all in person in San Antonio. Many thanks to everyone who puts in countless hours of volunteer work to make these Annual Meetings a success.

conferences including a Virtual Karst Forum and a Dams Forum, were included as break-even budgets. Additionally, potential revenue from Association sponsorships and webinars was estimated at modest levels, since there was little historical data to determine an accurate baseline. The declining member-ship trend was continued as were the high expenses for publi-cations. On the savings side, fewer travel expenses are planned and a reduced association management fee relative to 2019 will help keep Association overhead costs down.
The final accounting for 2020 is still in process, but we feel confident these numbers are reasonable. Additionally, the extra effort and energy spent in 2020 will ensure AEGs financials are in optimal shape moving forward. As everyone learned in 2020, there is always a twist you never saw coming, but people come together and resolve to learn and build back stronger together.
It has been my pleasure to serve you as Association Treas-urer this past year, and I look forward to my upcoming year as Vice President.
2019–20 ANNUAL REPORT OF THE ASSOCIATION
12 AEG 2020 Annual Report /2021 Directory March 2021
Association Historyn June 1957, 13 local engineering geologists met in
Sacramento, CA, to discuss the need for organization of a society in the specific field of engineering geology.
During the next eight months, this group of Founding Charter Members (enumerated at right on this page) set up the framework of the California Association of Engineering Geologists by formulating the aims of the organization, a definition of Engineering Geology, and membership qualifica-tions. In February 1958, although the Constitution and Bylaws were yet to be completed, membership recruitment was begun. Three Sections (Los Angeles, Sacramento, and San Francisco) were established.
The Association was incorporated according to the laws of the State of California on June 19, 1960. By this action, the original Executive Committee of twelve became the Board of Directors, and requisite constitutional changes were made accordingly.
During the early years following the formation of the Association, it became increasingly apparent that a need for a similar organization existed with engineering geologists every-where, not just in California. Evident from the first were the geologists outside the State of California, who were concerned with the application of geology to problems of civil engineering, who showed a marked interest in the organization. In recogni-tion of this need and interest, the membership voted better than 10 to 1 in late 1962 to remove all geographical limitations on the organization and to change the name to Association of Engineering Geologists. Constitutional changes to effect this organization were subsequently completed in early 1963.
In 1963, the first Section outside of California (Washington State) was established. Seventeen Sections, including two outside the United States, were recognized by 1973. On the occasion of the Association’s twenty-fifth year, 22 Sections formed the regional units of the Association.
In 1964, AEG was accepted as a member society of the American Geological Institute.
Our membership is presently located in 15 countries. In the United States, AEG’s membership comes from each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
At the Past Presidents’ Luncheon held at the 2004 Annual Meeting, the Past Presidents unanimously petitioned the Executive Council and Board of Directors to have the Associa-tion’s name changed to the Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists. The name change proposal was put up for a vote before the Association membership and was approved. On September 22, 2005, the name change became official at the AEG Corporate Business Meeting at the 2005 Annual Meeting. The name change reflects important changes in the public awareness of services provided by the Association members. The Association has been serving members from both the environmental and engineering geology community for a numberof years, and the name change serves to provide formal recognition of this support.
The membership of the Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists continues to grow, as the field of Engineering Geology and Environmental Geology gains greater recognition and the need for our organization becomes more apparent. Ever-increasing interest is being shown by geologists from countries around the world as the importance of applied geology, in both the development and restoration of the earth, gains international recognition.

nvironmental and engineering geology is the applica-tion of the practice of geology to engineering, environ-mental concerns, and the public health, safety and
welfare. Environmental and engineering geologists apply geologic data, techniques, and principles to the study of a) nat-urally occurring rock and soil materials, b) surface and subsur-face fluids, and c) the interaction of introduced materials and processes with the geologic environment. Such applications allow geologists to evaluate geologic factors that affect the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of engineering structures (fixed works); and develop, protect, and remediate groundwater and surface-water resources. Environ-mental and engineering geologists utilize specialized training and experience to provide quantitative geologic information and recommendations, as well as judgmental interpretations and recommendations.
In recent decades the scope of engineering geology has grown beyond its original, close connection to civil engineering, and environmental geology has become a significant practice. Environmental and engineering geologists now work with and for land-use planners, environmental specialists, architects, engineers, public agencies, public policy makers, private enter-prises, and property owners to provide geologic information on which they base decisions. Typical activities of environmental and engineering geologists include: 1. Investigate foundations for all types of major structures,
such as dams, bridges, power plants, pumping plants, airports, large buildings, and towers.
2. Evaluate geologic conditions along routes for tunnels, pipelines, canals, railways, and highways.
3. Explore and develop sources of rock, soil and sediment for use as construction materials.
4. Evaluate siting, design, impact mitigation, reclamation, and resource characterization for aggregate mines and rock quarries.
5. Investigate and develop surface and groundwater resources; manage groundwater basins to protect and remediate groundwater and surface-water resources that may be subject to degradation due to exposure of chemical degradation.
6. Assess and mitigate radon, asbestos, and other naturally occurring hazardous substances.
7. Evaluate geologic hazards such as landslides, faults and earthquakes, subsidence, expansive and collapsible soils, expansive bedrock, cavernous rock, acid-producing rock, and liquefaction.
8. Evaluate geologic conditions, including groundwater, that may affect residential, commercial, and industrial land use and development.
9. Evaluate geologic factors that affect construction, such as slope stability, dewatering, subdrains, grouting considerations, and excavatability.
10. Evaluate geologic conditions related to safe siting and geologic design for waste-management and -disposal facilities, and assist in establishing the basis for remedial actions for mitigation of related environmental threats from unengineered and uncontrolled waste disposal.
11. Characterize and assess geology and hydrology, and potential environmental impacts related to the geologic and hydrologic environment for environmental impact reports and permit applications.
12. Participate in land-use planning, reclaiming mined land, planning timber harvests, reviewing insurance claims, and assisting in forensic investigations. The environmental and engineering geologist, in coopera-
tion with the civil engineer, bears an important share of the responsibility for the public health, safety and welfare related to engineering works that may be affected by geologic fac-tors. The engineering profession has distinctively and effectively met its responsibility to the public through state registration laws throughout the United States. The Associa-tion of Environmental & Engineering Geologists actively sup-ports state registration or licensure of geologists and has published a Suggested Geologists Practice Act to assist in achieving professional registration or licensure for geologists.
The Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists is devoted to developing a spirit of professional responsibility on the part of engineering geologists, environmental geolo-gists, and hydrogeologists. One goal of the Association is to focus attention on environmental and engineering geology and its expanding role. The Association seeks to maintain high pro-fessional standards and enhance awareness of the responsi-bility of the environmental and engineering geologist to the public in general.
In the final analysis, environmental and engineering geology is applied geology for people who want to modify the geologic environment for their use and convenience while mitigating impacts, want to live in harmony with it, and restore previous impacts to the geologic and hydrologic environment. Environ-mental and engineering geologists help people understand their geologic and hydrologic environment, accommodate it, and correct their geo-environmental mistakes.

The Association acknowledges the work of geology stu-dents by the Student Professional Paper Contest. Annually, the Association may make two awards at the Annual Meeting to stu-dent members in good standing in undergraduate and/or grad-uate divisions. The professional paper award is made for papers of merit prepared in the style of the Environmental & Engineering Geoscience journal. The award in each category includes a cash prize, certificates to the student member and their academic institution, and publication of the paper in the Spring issue of Environmental & Engineering Geoscience.
Topics of the papers worthy of publication may range from literature searches to original work. The papers are judged by
seven full members of AEG selected by the President. None of the judges may be employed by an academic institution. Each paper is assessed on a number of criteria. The award in each of the two categories is made to the student whose paper has received the highest score above a minimum level.
Papers should be written and submitted in standard AEG/GSA journal format (refer to http://eeg.allentrack.net/cgi-bin/main.plex). Electronic copies should be submitted to the Student Professional Paper Contest Coordinator, William Godwin, at [email protected]. Please send either pdf files or MS word files where all figures have been compressed.

Introduction he Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists initially was developed to meet the profes-
sional needs of geologists who are applying their scientific training and experience to the broad fields of civil and military
engineering. Engineering Geologists have worked in close coordi-nation with construction, foundation and highway engineers, hydraulic engineers and hydrologists, and representatives of other branches of civil engineering and related scientific professions.
The Association of Engineering Geologists emerged in 1963 from its parent organization, the California Association of Engineering Geologists. This Directory contains a summary of the history of the two organizations and is intended to introduce the Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists to prospective members, others in the engineering and geologic professions, and the public. This Directory assembles the Asso-ciation’s major documents: the Mission, Values and Vision, the Principles of Ethical Behavior, the Constitution, the Bylaws, and Policies. The Association, through these documents, endeavors to aid the public welfare and to promote environmental and engineering geology. The membership carries out these responsibilities through general and technical publications, local geographic sections and their meetings, recognition of indi-vidual technical achievement, encouragement and financial assistance to students, formulation of policy statements on important topics, and specific pursuits of various national com-mittees formed of knowledgeable specialists. This Directory also contains qualifications required to gain membership (Bylaws, Article III), membership rosters, and other general reference information on the Association.

AEG 2023 Annual Meeting Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront – Portland, Oregon September 19–24 The In-Person AEG 2020 Annual Meeting has been rescheduled for 2023. Portland, Oregon’s largest city, sits on the Columbia and Willamette rivers, in the shadow of snow-capped Mount Hood. It’s known for its parks, bridges,
and bicycle paths, as well as for its eco-friendliness and its microbreweries and coffeehouses. The city hosts thriving art, theater, and music scenes. Surrounded by Portland hot spots, the Marriott Portland Down-town Waterfront hotel reflects the vibrancy of the city and is located
directly on the waterfront in downtown, surrounded by more than 60 breweries. Wind down with friends by sampling some of the 150 types of whiskey at their on-site restaurant, Proof Reader. The hotel even helps you go green with complimentary car-charging stations, biodegradable straws and easy access to light rail from the nearby Morrison Subway Station. At night, retire to elevated guest rooms with 24-hour room service, waterfall showers, free Wi-Fi, premium channels and views of Portland. Don’t miss all of the exciting Field Courses, Guest Tours and the Special Event at the Oswago Hills Vineyard planned for this incredible Annual Meeting.
