Upon registration, all Engineers and Geoscientists BC registrants are assigned to 1 of 15 regional branches, based on where they reside. Branches are led by an executive group composed of volunteers who serve as the registrants’ regional representatives and connect back to Engineers and Geoscientists BC's leadership team.
The branches play a vital role in the organization's interaction with both registrants and the public. Seminars, tours, and other events are organized by the branches year-round to create opportunities for continuing education and networking for registrants.
