Have you been asked to give a presentation to a local school, scout group, or other community group? Need some ideas on what to say? Well I have put together some web pages below for you to start with. I have included only pages that have free information. If you do a web search you will find additional sites that charge for their information.

The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) was founded in 1963 to certify the credentials
of practicing geologists and to advocate on behalf of the profession.

AIPG represents the professional interests of all practicing geoscientists in every discipline.
It's advocacy and efforts are focused on the promotion of the role of geology and geologists in society.
