This GEER Member Portal is intended to allow for personalized interaction between the Steering Committee, Advisory Panel and Membership. A key part in facilitating this transition to the new portal is having you update your individual information including addition of a password so that your information is appropriately protected. In the future, the new member portal will play an important role in engaging members in reconnaissance missions, webinars and in-person/on-line training sessions as well as other GEER communications.


Member Portal Content

GEER members represent a wide range of disciplines within the engineering and scientific community, with backgrounds in academia, industry, government organizations, and non-profit organizations. Although GEER’s focus is on geotechnical extreme events, we recognize the multidisciplinary nature of these events and welcome members from other natural science, engineering and social science disciplines. GEER is a global organization, and our reconnaissance efforts are made possible through close collaboration with local communities affected by disasters, and with GEER members who have connections to those communities.

All GEER members volunteer their time and efforts, including the members of the Steering Committee and Advisory Panel.
