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.

These major priorities are predicated on the conviction that:

  • the science of geology is vital to the interests of the nation, domestically and internationally, in times of peace and when national security is at risk; and
  • in order to best protect public health, safety, and welfare; provide strategic resources; and assist in the effective administration of government programs in which geology plays a prominent role, the science of geology should be practiced by qualified geoscientists.

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