RGSQ Membership

The Royal Geographical Society of Queensland promotes the study and science of geography and encourages a greater understanding and enjoyment of the world around us. The society is a voluntary, not-for-profit organisation that brings together and welcomes people from all walks of life who share an interest in this fascinating planet. Joining the Society provides numerous benefits and is a meaningful way to contribute to the field of geography.

Networking Opportunities and Online Forum/Community

RGSQ is a community of geography professionals and like-minded people united by a common desire to continuously learn, interact, collaborate, and innovate. Membership provides opportunities you need to keep up to date.

The Member Forum provides a platform to exchange ideas, discuss topics of interest, share resources and collaborate. To get the most out of your membership join in and feel free to make suggestions about what you would like see on the web site, what are your interests, where would you like to visit, what topics would you like to learn more about.

The Young Geographers Facebook group is a space for young geographers, recent graduates and early to mid-career geography professionals to network, socialise, explore career pathway opportunities, inspire and support the next generation of geographers.
