The Georgia Geo-Institute Chapter of ASCE has monthly meetings with dinner and technical discussions and presentations from September to May. The meetings are generally on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm at Georgia Power Company's Headquarters. The meetings are open to all and you are encouraged to attend if you are interested in geotechnical engineering. 

Each May the group and Georgia Tech present the Sowers Symposium in honor of Prof. George Sowers who helped start the group, taught many of its members, and was a leading geotechnical engineer.
