The general membership of the Geological Society of Nevada voted to approve the GSN Executive Committee's recommendation to establish the GSN Board of Directors in September, 2005. The Executive Committee was acting on the recommendations of an Ad Hoc Advisory Committee composed of ex-GSN Presidents, Bob Cuffney, Richard DeLong, Dieter Krewedl, David Shaddrick, Bob Thomas and Clancy Wendt. The Advisory Committee recognized the GSN had changed tremendously since its formation in 1957, becoming more complex given the needs of its large membership, the addition of three chapters and the establishment of its philanthropic Foundation. Additionally, because the GSN has a strong financial position there is added responsibility to properly manage these funds.
The GSN Board of Directors meets quarterly in February, May, August and November and consists of the following eleven members:
The purpose and goals of the GSN Board of Directors are as follows:
In order to obtain these goals, members of the Board of Directors have been assigned to the following six committees: Audit, Financial, Foundation Oversite, Nominating, Policy, and Symposium Oversite.
Further information about the Board of Directors can be found in the GSN Constitution and the GSN Board of Directors Policies, both of which are found on this website.
