IAH is actively involved with programs that provide a valuable forum for scientists and engineers who have a broad interest in global perspectives on groundwater resources and hydrogeological issues.
The USNC is affiliated with the National Ground Water Association (NGWA) and the Geological Society of America (GSA), as these organizations also have international groundwater science interests. The USNC holds meetings at annual events of these other organizations to encourage networking among USNC members and others who are interested in promoting international cooperation among hydrogeologists and others with an interest in groundwater. The USNC meets in the spring at the NGWA Ground Water Summit and in the fall at the GSA Annual Conference.
