The GSM Board consists of members who have a special interest in advancing the goals of our society, which include lectures, field trips, and community outreach. The Board currently has nine members, listed below. Our bylaws limit the terms of Board members to four years. We do that to encourage a turnover of perspectives and ideas. The Board typically meets quarterly, with meeting dates scheduled for the second Thursdays of February, May, August, and November. However, the Board will schedule a different date when conflicts arise. We typically meet between 7:00 & 9:00 PM at the Minnesota Geological Survey building.

Board meetings are open to all members of GSM. So, whether you are a new member of GSM or have been a member for many years, if Board membership is something that might interest you, or you are just curious to see what our Board does and how it works, I encourage you to attend a meeting. And if you have a topic you would like the Board to consider, contact me (Dave Wilhelm at about getting it on the agenda.

To the left of this page, you will find links to Board meeting minutes over the past few years.
