Meeting/Event Information

Technical Talks: The Minnesota Section of AIPG holds technical talks September through May, generally the first Tuesday of the month. The talks are designed to fulfill 1 Professional Development Hour (PDH). Professional Geologists, as licensed in the State of Minnesota, are required to complete 24 PDHs every biennium licensing period, including 2 PDHs of ethics.  The technical talks feature important subjects of interest to professional geologists.

The cost includes a buffet lunch and is $21 for non-members, $16 for members, and $0 for students when registering in advance.  We have limited same-day registration for $25. 

As always, non-members and non-geologists are welcome to attend!
