Who Can Join?

GBA offers membership to all who have an interest in and affiliation with the geoprofessions. It does so through two main categories of GBA membership:

Member Firm:

The Member Firm category of GBA membership is restricted to consulting firms in the geoprofessions, including one-person firms, who are dedicated to excellence in their professional practice. Geoprofessional firms provide geotechnical, geologic, environmental, construction materials engineering and testing, and related professional services.

GBA has seven GBA membership categories available for affiliated practitioners – firms and individuals who provide the services and information GBA Member Firms need to enhance their own businesses:

  • professional colleagues at constructor firms
  • collaborative geoconstructor firms
  • geoprofessional practitioners within other types of firms
  • institutional faculty
  • government employees
  • consultants to GBA Member Firms, and
