  • I have been a member / fellow of Geolsoc for nearly 20 years, there was a time when I found the admin a little frustrating but their new web interface is very efficient. The monthly publications offered are really first rate, and Geolsoc's Geoscientist Magazine is a nice light read, other publications are less digestible but that is the way of thing I guess . . omelettes and eggs etc.
  • I went for a conference there really nice building. it was a pity that there weren't any vegan options during the lunch time
