About Us

The Professional Soil Classifiers Association of Alabama was organized by a small group of Alabama Soil Scientists in 1975 to promote the profession of soil classifying in the state of Alabama.  The efforts of this group, with the assistance of Mr. James Plaster, then Executive Secretary of the Alabama Soil and Water Conservation Committee, resulted in the development and passage of the “Professional Soil Classifiers Registration Act” into State Law in 1981. We have grown into an organization of approximately 60 members from Alabama and other states dedicated to promoting the profession of Soil Classification.

OUR MISSION —   To foster the profession of soil classifying and to further the increase and dissemination of information concerning all phases of soil science in order to contribute to the general human welfare.

The objectives of the PSCAA are:

  • * Promote the wise utilization of soils as a natural resource.
  • * Protect the public welfare by encouraging all qualified Soil Classifiers to register.
  • * Advance the professional interests of the Professional Soil Classifiers.
  • * Promote high standards of education in soil science.
  • * Enhance public appreciation of the profession.
  • * Establish high standards of ethical conduct in all professional matters.
