Upon registration, all Engineers and Geoscientists BC members are assigned to one of 15 regional branches. Branches are led by an executive group composed of volunteers who serve as the members’ regional representatives and connect back to Engineers and Geoscientists BC's leadership team. The branches play a vital role in the association’s interaction with both members and the public.
Tours, seminars, and other social events are organized by the branches year-round to create opportunities for professional development and networking for members.
