The Geological Society of America is a premiere international scientific society which includes 7 geographic sections with a total global membership in excess of 25,000. Dr. Pollock recently ended his 12 year tenure as Secretary and Chief Accounting Officer for the Geological Society of America's Northeastern Section. During his tenure, the section endowment grew over 10 fold from 2001-2013 with membership in the section increasing from slightly less than 2000 to more than 4700 in 2013. Growth continues in the Northeastern Section with over 5000 members. The Geological Society of America honored Dr. Pollock with a Distinguished Service Award last October during its annual meeting in Denver, Colorado.
