American Geological Institute

1999 AGI Geoscience Associate's Conference

The mission of the Associates program of the American Geological Institute is to serve the wider geoscience community by fostering improved communication between academia, the private sector, and government.  The ultimate goals of the program are to develop a more effective public presence for the geosciences, develop a sufficient stream of well-trained geoscientists to support industry and government, and to allow for the dissemination of ideas between the various geoscience sectors. 

A key event of the AGI Associates Program is the Academic - Corporate Associates Conference.  This conference brings leaders from industry, academia, and government agencies together for focused presentations and discussions concerning the major issues facing the geoscience community.  The conference will facilitate achievement of the goals of the AGI Associates program by initiating a public dialog between the employers and suppliers of professional geoscientists.  By means of focused discussion, the conference intends to develop a set of defined issues and action items which will be used as a catalyst for change.  Through the participation of the leaders in attendance at the conference, it is intended that these action items will not only be a conceptual list, but an active charge for enhancing the effectiveness of geoscience professionals in determining the Nation's future.
