SEG Foundation Leadership

SEG Foundation leadership is comprised of many dedicated individuals, corporations, and sections/associated societies who give generously of their time, talent, and financial resources. Without the passion and commitment of our donors and volunteers, we could not succeed.


Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is the governing body of the SEG Foundation. Our board is comprised of industry leaders who are passionate about geophysics and our professional community.



The important work of the SEG Foundation is carried out through the leadership of several committees. These committees include six administrative committees (to provide business guidance and to ensure our financial well being) and four grant program committees (to carry forward the mission of the SEG Foundation and to ensure that programs function effectively, while honoring our donors' intentions).


Our Donors

The SEG Foundation exists today because of the passion and generosity of our donors. Without financial support from the geophysical community, we would not be able to fulfill our mission. Your gift to the SEG Foundation makes a profound difference, by empowering us to Advance Geophysics Today and Inspire Geoscientists for Tomorrow.
