EAGE encourages the active participation of its members in every region. In order to make it easier to attend and organize events in your region, EAGE offers members the possibility to start an EAGE Local Chapter. Local Chapters encourage EAGE membership in their region, organize their own events and support communication between the members and the EAGE Head Office. If you are interested in representing EAGE in your own region, you have the opportunity to start a Local Chapter.
Creating a local chapter offers a number of benefits as EAGE supports training and education of the local chapter members. In this way, opportunities are created for geoscientists in a certain region to connect and to share knowledge and experiences.
Creating a Local Chapter in your region includes a number of benefits:
- A short course or workshop by a DLP lecturer once every year
- Financial event support possibilities, via EAGE PACE fund
- Publishing opportunities in First Break, the monthly magazine of EAGE
- Website exposure
- Promotion of Local Chapter activities by EAGE
- Promote EAGE among your region
Do you want to create a Local Chapter in your region and become Local Chapter President? Please read the guidelines and fill out the application form. If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Local Chapter Summit
Representatives of EAGE Local Chapters are invited to a dedicated Local Chapter Summit organized during the EAGE Annual Conference & Exhibition to present their chapters’ activities, meet their colleagues from other Local Chapters, and to exchange ideas and experiences. The Local Chapter Tour 2016 took place on Monday 30 May, starting with a guided tour at the Vienna Museum of Natural History, followed by a buffet lunch and presentations at the Reed Messe Wien.
Best Local Chapter 2016
Every year, EAGE awards one Chapter to recognize their exceptionally active and engaging involvement. In 2016, the Committee on Membership and Co-operation decided to grant not one but two Chapters with the EAGE Best Local Chapter Award, the Local Chapter Serbia and the Local Chapter China.
