IAGeo Limited was formed as a legal entity to enable the IAG to enter into commercial contracts and to keep any financial transactions separate from the scientific business of the Association, thus protecting members’ subscriptions and the Association’s funds. It makes the IAG’s high quality reference materials available to members and the wider geoanalytical community at modest cost. The company has marketing agreements with other producers of reference materials. It also operates contracts with ASGA and Wiley-Blackwell for the publication of Geostandards and Geoanalytical Research.
IAGeo Limited was incorporated on 18th November 2004 under the UK Companies Act 1985 as company number 5290703. Its issued share capital is one ordinary share with a notional value of £1. This is currently held by Phil Potts, a past president of the IAG. It is run on a day to day basis by Doug Miles, founding president of the IAG, and Jenny Cook, IAG Secretary.
