GEAPS Grain Elevator and Processing Society

GEAPS Grain Elevator and Processing Society

Even in the seven-plus decades since its inception, the function of GEAPS hasn't really changed much. It was way back in 1927 when two elevator superintendents first started talking about launching an organization to help them deal with the challenges of running grain facilities. GEAPS began as the Society of Grain Elevator Superintendents [SOGES], with its first meeting in 1930 in Chicago. Soon chapters began to form in grain centers across the continent: the Minneapolis chapter began in 1936, followed the next year by Thunder Bay. Today, 30 GEAPS chapters are engaged in providing that same sort of forum for some 2,500 members across North America and around the world.
