Geological Society of America - South Central Section

We are excited to announce that the GSA 2022 South-Central Section Meeting is planned as an in-person meeting to be held in McAllen, Texas, USA, at the heart of the Rio Grande Valley, on March 14–15, 2022. McAllen, considered the South Pole of Texas, is served by a subtropical climate, with a rich, binational and cultural history and traditional cuisines, and is just an hour’s drive from South Padre Island. McAllen has a vibrant downtown with museums, restaurants, art galleries, and live music venues. The conference location is the brand-new Embassy Suites Hotel by the McAllen Convention Center, conveniently located at less than a 10-minute drive from the McAllen International airport (MFE), and within walking distance of many restaurants, shopping centers, and other hotels. McAllen is easily accessible by plane from Houston (United) or from Dallas (American).

Field trips, short courses, and the Welcoming Reception will be on Sunday, March 13, followed by technical sessions and events on Monday and Tuesday, March 14 & 15 .
