Purpose and activities of Professional Practice Groups
The primary purpose of Professional Practice Groups is to support and promote their area of geography through support for professional practice; their interests may also overlap into education, policy, research and innovation.
It is expected that Groups will offer this support through activities that might include but are not limited to:
organising networking and knowledge exchange events
offering mentoring opportunities
keeping members up to date with the latest developments in their field
sharing best practice resources
distributing news and information about relevant opportunities.
It is hoped that the Groups will support and enhance the professional development and lifelong learning of Chartered Geographers, and those working towards the accreditation, by building stronger links between all geographers within specific sectors or fields of work.
