Membership & Chartership

The Geological Society offers geoscientists continuity and support through every phase of scientific and professional life.

Membership brings many benefits, including professional recognition. Fellows are entitled to the letters FGS after their name and Chartered Geologists can add the postnominal CGeol.

All Fellows receive our monthly magazine, Geoscientist, a choice of free access to Society journals from the Lyell Collection, discounted publications and meeting fees and access to our world-class geological library. In addition, all Fellows have access to our online Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme.
