Celebrating 25 years of Chartership

Institute of Geologists Medal with professional woman

In 1990, the Society took on many of the activities of the former Institution of Geologists and created a professional grade of membership;

Chartered Geologist with the post nominal ‘CGeol’. 


September 2015 marked the quarter century anniversary of this title.

There were 608 Chartered Geologists elected in the first cohort, and over the last 25 years the numbers have steadily grown and now total 2500. The rigour in the process for assessing applications for Chartership ensures that the quality of applicants nominated for validation is of the highest standard. As a result, the Chartered Geologist title is now widely recognised and respected in the UK and a number of other countries and it is attracting an increasing number of applicants.

To celebrate this milestone the Society organised an event with key speakers including John Mather and Paul Younger.
