The latest cohort of geography professionals to be recognised for their use of geographical skills in the workplace were officially awarded Chartered Geographer status by the Society’s Council at their meeting in April.
The burgeoning network of Chartered Geographers (CGeogs) now stands at over 650, with those most recently accredited including employees of Mouchel, Ordnance Survey and Arup, showing CGeog is the leading accreditation for geographers worldwide.
CGeogs are experts in diverse fields and demonstrate competence, experience and professionalism in the use of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills in the workplace whether that’s an environmental consultancy, mapping agency or school.
The next networking event for current CGeogs and those interested in finding out more about professional accreditation is taking place at the Society on Wednesday 25 May 2016. All professional geographers are welcome to attend the evening which will include a CPD session on mentoring and opportunities for one-on-one application guidance. There will also be a geospatial careers surgery for early career geographers.
Attendees will also be able to network with other professionals and attend a private view of the Britain from the Air exhibition.
