Become a Scrutineer

Are you a Chartered Geologist or Chartered Scientist? You might be eligible to become a Scrutineer, helping us to guide and assess the next generation of Chartered Fellows.

Membership & Chartership


With the current difficulties of holding face-to-face meetings for Chartership, we are currently conducting Chartership interviews via video conferencing (Zoom or Microsoft Teams). Fellows wishing to apply for Chartership should continue to do so as normal, using electronic file transfer (WeTransfer).

Please contact if you have any questions.

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 quarterly 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.

Becoming a Chartered Fellow has a positive impact on your career.
