Benefits of joining for annual conference attendees

Joining the Society as a Fellow or Postgraduate Fellow offers you the opportunity to network with others in your profession and support the spread of geographical knowledge.

In addition to reduced registration fees for conference, Fellows and members enjoy a wide range of benefits, including access to the Society's Research Groups, academic journals, online lectures, the Society's Collections, and more.


Fellows play a vital role in the Society’s mission to advance geography. By joining as a Fellow you will be actively supporting the future of geography as well as benefiting from being part of thriving research community. Annual membership from £110.

If you mention the annual conference when joining we will waive the one-off joining fee for Fellowship (usually £30).

Fellowship of the Society allows you to benefit from the discounted registration fees for conference attendance.

Postgraduate Fellowship

Postgraduate Fellowship is an excellent opportunity for early career researchers to be actively involved in the wider geographical research community. Whether through the Postgraduate Forum, or being part of one of the Society’s Research Groups, there are plenty of opportunities to share your research and learn from your peers. Annual membership from £33.

Postgraduate Fellowship of the Society allows you to benefit from the discounted registration fees for conference attendance.

Existing Fellows and members: Renew your subscription

Delegates who are Fellows or members of the Society who wish to pay for their membership renewal at the same time as registration are encouraged to contact ac2018@rgs.org for assistance. The Society can issue both charges on a single invoice/receipt, suitable for professional expenses claims. 

Online registration and membership

Our online event booking system is linked to our membership database. This enables members to receive the discounted fees for the annual international conference.

Please note that you will not be able to book online at the Members' rate until your membership application is complete. The conference organisers can manually process your conference registration at the Members' rate once the membership application process has been started. 

If you have recently made an application for membership, please use the manual booking form to take advantage of the lower rate.
