The Geo-Institute (G-I) is a specialty membership organization focused on geo-professionals and the geo-industry. It is one of the American Society of Civil Engineers’ eight specialty Institutes. Similarly, the San Francisco Geo-Institute (SFGI) is the local specialty chapter mirroring the goals and purposes of the G-I. The purpose of the SFGI is to locally promote an interest in and the general advancement of engineering knowledge in the fields of geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering, and related earth sciences.

Our geoprofessionals work to improve the built environment; prevent the loss of life from natural and man-made hazards, and construct sound and reliable engineered facilities and structures.
