The PBS-SEPM, Permian Basin Section – Society of Economic Paleontologists & Mineralogists, has been serving the Permian Basin since 1954. Our organization helps keep the Permian Basin geoscience fields up-to-date by bringing in speakers and field trip leaders to discuss different aspects of geology and other geoscience fields. 

Our non-profit society relies entirely upon the efforts of dedicated volunteers to serve the geological community—primarily through educational events. The PBS-SEPM hosts luncheon lectures, core workshops and field trips. We bring in guest speakers from all over the country to discuss current geological topics. Our luncheon lecture series, along with core workshop classes, and field trips are led by experts in their chosen areas of the geosciences.


The Robert Read Distinguished Lecturer Fund was founded to honor a bright, young geologist who had been an active member of both PBS-SEPM and WTGS and was tragically killed by a drunk driver. Donations from various members of both societies contributed to a membership donation fund that both encourages our continuing education efforts by helping offset the cost of bringing in a distinguished lecturer, usually in geosciences, but not required. With these funds, we will bring our members and community a distinguished lecturer to present at a dinner event. 

The PBS-SEPM also provides scholarships to graduating high school students in western Texas and New Mexico. These scholarships are also offered to college students that have declared their desire to pursue a degree in the geosciences. See the Scholarships page for more information.


We welcome both corporate and individual sponsorship. Your support will help benefit the Permian Basin geoscience community and further our mission to provide topical education of the geosciences. If you would like to sponsor the PBS-SEPM in anyway, we have various levels of commitment you can choose from.
