The 2014 AIPG/AHS National Conference will be hosted by the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) and the Arizona Hydrological Society (AHS).
AIPG, a national organization, founded in 1963, is the largest association dedicated to promoting geology as a profession. It presently has more than 7,000 members in the U.S. and abroad. The Institute adheres to the principles of professional responsibility and public service and is the only international organization that certifies the competence and ethical conduct of geological scientists in all branches of the science with members employed in industry, government, and academia.
AHS, formed in 1985, is dedicated to advancing hydrology and water resource research, planning, and development. AHS provides an open forum for professionals to exchange information, but also supports public understanding, education, and training in the science and technology of hydrology and water resources. An important part of AHS’ mission is promoting the responsible use, management, and preservation of water resources in the arid southwest.
