The West Midlands Regional Group organises technical and social events for a wide range of earth scientists and geologists who may live and/or work in the region; from Shrewsbury to Stratford, Tamworth to Worcester, and everywhere in between.

Our members come from various fields of expertise from industry and academia; from students and enthusiasts to retirees.

Our evening meetings/talks are held on or around the second Tuesday of each month, between September and May, at various locations across the West Midlands. All meetings count towards Continued Professional Development (CPD), with certificates available on request.
