Welcome To GSP Website
The Geological Society of the Philippines (GSP) is the only accredited professional organization (APO) of geologists in the Philippines by the Professional Regulation Commission.
The objectives of the Society are:
(1) to promote the science of geology and allied earth sciences;
(2) to foster the spirit of scientific research;
(3) to disseminate knowledge concerning the geology of the Philippines and the regions immediately surrounding it; and
(4) to protect and maintain a high professional and ethical standard in the practice of geology amongst its members.
Induction of the 2019 GSP Officers, Trustees and Committee Chairpersons
The Induction of the 2019 GSP Officers, Trustees and Committee Chairs was held last January 31, 2019, 6:00 pm at the PHIVOLCS Auditorium. Close to 50 GSP officers, committee members, volunteers and sponsors attended the event. Dr. Benjamin Austria of the PRC Board of Geology served as the inducting officer. He also gave a message to the officers and members on how the Board of Geology and the GSP can work hand in hand for the benefit of the geological community.
Dr. Dimalanta, on behalf of the Board of Trustees, presented the plans of the various GSP Committees for 2019. This year promises to be an exciting time for GSP as the Society prepares to celebrate its 75th year in 2020 (as mentioned by Dr. Elmer Billedo) coincident with the GSP spearheading the hosting of the GEOSEA conference.
The night was capped off by an enjoyable dinner with fruitful discussions among friends and peers.
At the same event, three new Competent Persons in Reporting Exploration Results/Mineral Resources Estimates were inducted. They are Mr. Carlito Ausa, Mr. Jefferson Lulu and Mr. Luisito Sangalang.
