Welcome to the official website for the Calgary Geotechnical Society.
The society relies on volunteers to help organize and put on the events, and sponsorship from local geotechnical companies and support from the national CGS. If you are interested in helping on the committee, if you have ideas for speakers or topics, or if your company would like to help sponsor the society or a specific event, please talk to one of the committee or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
