How to Join

Current RGS members

You can add GeogEd membership to your existing RGS membership free of charge (and you can join as many Research Groups as you wish). You can do this by emailing and asking for GeogEd to be added to your records. Funding from the RGS-IBG each year is determined by the number of current RGS Members/Fellows who are also members of GeogEd. It is therefore in the interests of the group to join GeogEd via this route if possible.

Not an RGS member?

Please email the GeogEd Secretary ( with your name, email address for the mailing list, and institution/college/school. While we do welcome non-RGS members joining this RGS GeogEd Research Group, we do wish to promote the benefits of joining the RGS as a member, both for the individual and GeogEd (see above).

If you have any questions about GeogEd Membership please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Secretary (
