Today, it is a world-leading communicator of Earth science – through its scholarly publishing, library and information services, cutting-edge scientific conferences, education activities and outreach to the general public. It also provides impartial scientific information and evidence to support policy-making and public debate about the challenges facing humanity. The Society is the UK’s professional body for Earth science and has a worldwide membership of over 11,500 of which more than 2,000 of live overseas and over 2,500 are Chartered Geologists or Chartered Scientists.

Presidents are elected for two years, and the President-designate serves for one year on Council before assuming office. The role of President is a recognition of standing within the Science and represents a significant personal achievement.
