The organization of the International Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment is generally conducted through National Groups although individual membership is also permitted. 

National Groups are associations, corporations, or societies which represent the interests of Engineering Geology in their countries or groups of countries (regional organizations). The list of National Groups is accessible via this link. Members of National Groups apply for affiliation to the IAEG through their National Group

Individual members are individuals interested in Engineering Geology whose affiliation to the IAEG is not through any National Group and who pay their fees directly to the Secretariat. Individual membership is encouraged in countries where no National Groups exist.

Associate Members (Supporting Members) are institutions, organizations and companies interested in supporting the activities of the IAEG for the advancement of Engineering Geology.

If you wish to become a member of the IAEG you can use one of the following procedures:

  • In countries with an IAEG National Group, you have to inform the contact person of your National Group (map and contact details are shown in this website)
  • In countries without an IAEG National Group you should contact the
