The South-West Regional Group (SWRG) is well established and active, celebrating its 30th Anniversary in January 2005. It aims to provide a local regional focus for all Geological Society Fellows and activities. It arranges a wide-ranging programme of meetings and activities to meet the requirements of its active membership, including ProGeo - an annual one-day conference for professional geoscientists in the South West – usually held in October. The group also runs a schools competition for all secondary schools teaching any aspect of the Geosciences.

Venues for meetings include locations in Exeter, Plymouth and in Cornwall.

The SWRG welcomes new members, as well as guests and co-professionals, to join its activities and play a part in its continuing development. Any members with an interest in joining our Committee – either as an officer or as a part of the wider Committee Group – should contact the Chair, Sarah Boulton, in the first instance .

We have a page on Facebook and LinkedIn - follow us and join in the discussions!
