Meetings and Professional Development Portfolio

The Meetings and Professional Development portfolio continues to provide a solid foundation for the activities of the Geological Society of South Africa. Our courses and events include meetings, workshops, conferences and specialist courses. A few examples include the Geoforum, where earth sciences are presented and a commercial venue for mining and service companies is provided, stand-alone courses such as Drilling for Geologists, Structural Geology and Competent Person’s Reporting and conferences with a single theme, such as symposiums on iron and manganese and the state of the diamond industry.

Most of these events qualify for CPD points (Continuing Professional Development). The GSSA, in conjunction with SACNASP (South African Council for Natural Scientific Professions) is also setting up an accreditation system whereby non-GSSA courses and events will be adjudicated for inclusion in the CPD points system.
