We are always keen to welcome new members to the GeogEd community. Members of the group receive:
- Access to the GeogEd Jisc Mailing list where updates, information relating to the group and opportunities to get involved are shared.
- The opportunity to stand for election to vacant Committee positions (although it should be noted that at least 50% of the Committee must be RGS Members or Fellows).
- The opportunity to submit proposals for GeogEd sponsored sessions at the RGS-IBG Annual International Conference.
There are two ways you can join the group, depending on whether you are a current RGS Member/Fellow or not:
Current RGS Members/Fellows: 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Non RGS Members/Fellows: Please email the GeogEd Secretary (email@example.com) 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
