Younger Members’ Committee
The Younger Members’ Committee organise a programme of geographical events with a strong social element, aimed at both members and the wider public. The events provide an invaluable contribution to the Society’s London activities, providing an opportunity for like-minded individuals to meet each other and to engage with geographical topics in an informal atmosphere.
Attendees, and committee members, mostly fall into the 20-45 age group. Events are open to all, except wine tasting evenings and the Summer Garden Party, which are for over 18s.
Other regular events include informal drinks in the Map Room following the first Monday night lecture of each month, a Christmas quiz, an opportunity to experience the Society's Collections, and the annual Geographical journeys: microlectures evening – an inspiring series of short talks about recent journeys, which brings together a selection of less experienced speakers chosen via an application process that is open to all, including non-members of the Society. Applications to speak at the next event are open until 30 October 2022.
The committee is currently chaired by Annabel Illingworth. If you would like to find out more, or get involved in the Younger Members’ Committee, please contact us.
