Sponsorship

The Atlanta Geological Society (AGS) benefits from the generosity of our Sponsors. In return, we highlight their contributions at our meetings, in our newsletters and on our website. Sponsor funding helps finance a variety of activities.

  • Each year we host as many as ten lectures on various topics associated with geology, geoscience, and the environment that are presented during monthly meetings. Sponsor funding provides food and refreshments during these meetings.
  • We also host monthly Saturday workshops that provide technical review of geologic topics geared to help professional geologist candidates review and study for the National Association of State Boards of Geologists exams. Sponsor funding provides food and refreshments during these workshops.
  • The AGS awards mini-grants to assist educators and scientists in their effort to promote aspects of geology and participate in relevant conferences. Sponsor funding helps finance these grants.
  • The AGS hosts an annual Social so members can meet in an informal setting, share a meal, and watch a movie at the Fernbank Museum’s Rankin M. Smith Sr. 4K Giant Screen Theater. Sponsor funding helps finance this annual event.

In return for funding support, the sponsor may set up a display and provide promotional materials at the meeting, receives recognition from officers, and is given time for a short presentation. There is plenty of opportunity to mingle with members during pre-meeting refreshments. AGS sponsors are recognized in our monthly newsletter and on our web site.

AGS appreciates all levels of support. Following are costs of various activities:

  • Monthly meetings: $200
  • Saturday workshops: $50
  • Annual social: $1,000+
  • Teacher Grants: $500

We welcome full or partial funding support.
