Geosynthetic Materials Association
GMA provides engineering support, business development opportunities, in-person and online educational programming, government relations expertise and industry recognitions. GMA influences specifications and lobbies on behalf of member companies. GMA targets key U.S. states to expand the geosynthetics market. GMA provides a network to exchange information, solve common problems and develop mutually beneficial relationships.
GMA is a central resource for information on geosynthetics and provides a forum for consistent and accurate information to increase acceptance and promote the correct use of geosynthetics.
Since its inception, geosynthetics use has expanded into nearly all areas of civil, geotechnical, environmental, coastal and hydraulic construction. Its industry events provide networking opportunities and exposure to the industry for engineers, specifiers, contractors, government agencies and academics.
