Stan Thomson Award

In 1982, the GSE introduced the Geotechnical Service Award, which is currently known as Stan Thomson Geotechnical Society Award since 1999. This award recognizes a particular individual’s contribution to the development and growth of the GSE and to geotechnical/ geo-environmental engineering in the Edmonton area. The award consists of a commemorative plaque and a life-time membership to the Society.
