Our Statement of Services
The focus at NYSCPG is fourfold:
What do we do?
How do we do it?
NYSCPG aims to represent the interests of professional geologists and students over a variety of practice disciplines.

The dues paid by its members allow NYSCPG to advance and promote the profession of geology through building public appreciation for how professional geologists contribute to protection of public health, safety, and welfare, and the balanced protection of the environment.
