The national Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists (AEG) approved creation of an Arizona Chapter at their board meeting on Friday. For the past 2+ years, we have had an AEG section in Phoenix as part of the Las Vegas-based Southwest Chapter. There is also a student chapter at the University of Arizona.
Section presidents Jessica Humble and now Ken Fergason, with great support from many others, have done incredible jobs building the section into a dynamic professional organization. The next question is now that we have an Arizona section, when will it be active in Tucson?
