Branches

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 link back to Engineers and Geoscientists BC leadership. 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.

  • Acting as a focus for discussion of association affairs,
  • Providing direct regional communication with the membership,
  • Organizing the delivery of local professional development opportunities,
  • Facilitating the efforts of the association to increase public and especially student awareness of the value of engineering and geoscience,
  • Coordinating local meetings and social events, and
  • Members are encouraged to become active in the affairs of their local branch. Important programs that are offered by many branches include career awareness initiatives for elementary students, organization and judging of science fairs for secondary students, mentoring programs for members-in-training or university students, coordination of professional development opportunities for members, and facilitation of technical presentations.
