east midlands

East Midlands is a long established Regional Group with a good reputation for well attended meetings in a friendly atmosphere, where younger people with an interest in geology are especially welcome. Our monthly evening lectures are open to all and we even offer free tea, coffee and sandwiches.

Our speakers are usually at the top of their profession and are drawn from a broad spectrum of Geoscience related disciplines. If you wish to hear an expert speak on an interesting subject and chat to people with similar interests, why not come along and meet us?

If you would like to propose a topic for a future evening lecture, please contact Helen Burke ( If you wish to be notified of future EMRG events, please email

For those seeking to further a career in all aspects of geoscience our meetings will enhance any Continuing Professional Development (CPD) record and our committee are very happy to offer advice and a helping hand.

The EMRG committee comprises representatives from BGS, industry and academia. The committee meet regularly throughout the year and hold an AGM every January, which is open to all members of the Geological Society to attend.

Join the EMRG Committee!

Several members of the committee of the East Midlands Regional Group of the Geological Society wish to step down in the new year and we are looking for people to replace them. We are an active group, with talks held once a month on a variety of geology related subjects, including nuclear waste, engineering and natural hazards.

This is your chance to have a say on future talk topics and take an active role in the running of the group. If you are interested in taking on one of these roles, please contact Jo Thomas (secretary) for further information by email to
