The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG)
was founded in 1963 to certify the credentials of practicing geologists and to advocate on behalf of the profession.

AIPG represents the professional interests of all practicing geoscientists in every discipline.
Its advocacy efforts are focused on the promotion of the role of
geology and geologists in society.
