The Society holds events in eight regions around England and Wales, plus (new in 2010) Northern Ireland. Local volunteer committees organise events including lectures, exhibitions and field visits.
Most events are open to both RGS-IBG members and the general public. RGS-IBG members may attend any UK event, not just those in their local area.
If you are a member of the Society and would be interested in finding out more about your local volunteer regional committee, please contact your local committee representative or the Programmes Office on +44 (0)20 7591 3100 or firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition, a branch in Hong Kong organises a lively programme and a new branch in Singapore is being developed by local Fellows.
