Dear Friends of the Geoprofessions:
I invite you to take a closer look at the Geoprofessional Business Association (GBA). We are a not-for-profit organization whose 300 Member Firms provide geotechnical, geologic, environmental, construction-materials engineering and testing, and related geoprofessional services that are essential to the welfare of our society and economy. Value is derived from the wise deployment of geoprofessional expertise where below-ground (“subsurface”), ground-surface, and ground-surface-connected conditions, structures, or formations present challenges and opportunities. GBA specializes in helping our members confront risk and optimize business performance. Through this focus, our members and their staff develop skills to become their clients' trusted professional advisors, helping their clients save time, save money and better manage their own risk. I am honored to serve as GBA’s president during the organization’s May 2014-April 2015 year.

GBA continues to lead in the further development and refinement of sustainable practices through the following objectives:
GBA affirms a commitment to take a leadership position with regard to sustainability. GBA also affirms our belief that as a small organization we create significantly greater value when we help our members firms develop and implement sustainable outcomes in the services they perform for their clients.
