Technical Committees, organized by the Technical Coordination Council, are the gateway to the Geo-Institute’s core value of technical excellence. Technical Committees:

  • organize technical content and technical sessions for specialty conferences, workshops, and short courses
  • develop publications and manuals of practice
  • provide expert opinions and respond to emergencies
  • partner with liaison organizations
  • formulate and execute special projects and new technical initiatives.

Participation in a technical committee gives members a voice in the development of design guidelines and other technical publications. Committee membership also provides the opportunity to network with experts in a given field practicing throughout the country and the world.
