About the Society

The Soil Science Society of North Carolina (SSSNC) is a professional society that includes researchers, educators, regulatory personnel, consultants, and environmental health specialists. Our mission is to promote the accumulation, dissemination, and utilization of knowledge pertaining to the soils of North Carolina and to provide a medium for exchange of information by those interested in soil science and in closely related subject matter areas.

The SSSNC was established in 1967 by a group of like minded soil scientists, and we continue to be a 100% volunteer run society to date. As a non-profit organization (501c3), we promote education by offering continuing education courses, encouraging soil science research, supporting educational programs, and funding an annual scholarship. We are a membership based organization opened to the public. Visit our membership page to learn more about becoming a member. Soil science professionals, students and any interested parties are welcome to join our cause. Subscribe to the Society listserv to get the latest SSSNC news. Our Policy Manual can be found here and our by-laws can be found here.

The Soil Science Society of North Carolina is a corporate member of the Soil Science Society of America, a progressive international scientific society that fosters the transfer of knowledge and practices to sustain global soils.
