President's welcome speech
On behalf of members of the National Executive Council (NEC) of our Association, I welcome you all with great pleasure to the Association’s site. The Association has evolved steadily since its establishment and inauguration in 2008 at the Department of Geology, University of Benin, Benin city. Much of our progress as a society was experienced in the last 4 years with the 1st and 2nd annual international conferences and workshop by the society. Membership of the society has also expanded, so has the participation in our annual international conferences. Efforts to grow membership will be increased in the coming year, targeting the practicing professional class. We will strive to make the Association exciting as a specialist group under the broad umbrella of NMGS. It will give me great pressure to see all our members and intending members with broad interests in engineering geology, geotechnics, hydrogeology, engineering seismology, rock mechanics, engineering geomorphology during our next major activity of the Association, to be hosted in Port-Harcourt, September 2018. Thank you. Prof. T.K.S Abam President (NAEGE)
