AIPG Summary

AIPG was founded in 1963 to certify the credentials of practicing geologists and to advocate on behalf of the geologic profession. The science of geology is vital to the interests of the nation and in order to best protect public health, safety, welfare, and the environment. AIPG is an organization of qualified geologists dedicated to this mission.

We hope you will find the Minnesota AIPG webpage useful and informative. We strongly encourage all qualified geologists to join AIPG, and application information is available here. Additionally, Minnesota AIPG strongly supports Geologist Registration in Minnesota. If you are looking for information on study guides to prepare for the ASBOG exam click here.

The AIPG Minnesota Section Sponsorship Committee is pleased to announce revisions to the sponsorship structure beginning in September 2015. We will now be offering annual (September through August) sponsorships rather than individual meeting sponsors. The annual sponsorship will be $250 per year, and will provide the following benefits to sponsors:

  • Company or individual name/logo featured on a continuous loop powerpoint display for approximately 30 minutes before and during the announcements at the beginning of each monthly meeting.
  • Company or individual name/logo featured in a sidebar on each monthly meeting agenda.
  • Company or individual name/logo listed as a sponsor on the AIPG MN Chapter newsletter (quarterly).
  • Company or individual name/logo featured as a sponsor on the AIPG MN Chapter web site.
  • 2 free lunch meeting attendances to be used at any time during the sponsorship year (cannot be carried over to later years)


If you would like to become a Minnesota Chapter Sponsor or have questions about the sponsorship, please contact us at Sponsorship@AIPGMN.org or paula.berger@wspgroup.com.

You can "order" your 2015-2016 Sponsorship on our website catalog!
