Membership

The Atlanta Geological Society has been one of the most active professional groups in the Southeast since its inception in 1991. Our membership and dues are structured simply:

Professional Membership            $25

Student Membership                      $10

Corporate (up to 4 members)     $100

We’ve made it easy for you to pay your membership dues online.

Go to:  https://squareup.com/store/atlanta-geological-society now and update your membership for 2018.

After your payment has been made, please download the membership form, complete the appropriate fields, save and email to John Salvino (Square reports very little information back to the “retailer”).

Alternatively, you could bring the form and your credit card, cash, or check to the next meeting. Or mail it to the address on the form.

Dues are payable at the beginning of the calendar year.

Your membership dues must be up to date to join us for the June  Social.
