The Vancouver Geotechnical Society executive committee meets approximately once a month to organize technical presentations and social events, and to review issues relevant to the society membership. Generally, the executive meetings take place immediately before the monthly technical presentations. The attendance at the technical presentation ranges from about 60 to 100 persons. The executive also maintains regular ties with other geotechnical groups in British Columbia and Washington State. Notices of upcoming events held by other similar local organizations are distributed to all VGS members in addition to notices of VGS events.
