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?

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.

We always welcome new committee members, especially from industry and acaddemia. Please contact John Black if you wish to join the committee, or if you just want to attend a few meetings before deciding.
