NSGG Society

The NSGG is a specialist group of The Geological Society of London. We organise and host meetings, but there is no formal membership. 

All members of the Geological Society may attend NSGG events either at reduced rates or, as in most cases, at no cost. As the NSGG is a member of the British Geophysics Association, all members of the Royal Astronomical Society receive the same privileges. Members of the Geological Society receive notification of meetings through Geoscientist, e-mail, the Geological Society’s Web site and by post. Meeting notices are also posted on relevant mailing lists, so if you want to receive notices as they appear, please register with an appropriate mailing list.
