Welcome to GSN



 Organisation and Aims

The Society exists to promote the study of all aspects of the geology of Norfolk.

By "geology" we mean the science in its broadest sense, including geomorphology, (the study of landforms), palaeontology, (all aspects relating to fossils), and site conservation.

Any individual over the age of 16 may apply to become an ordinary member of the Society; the annual subscription is £10. Persons in full time education may join for 50% of the ordinary membership fee. Institutions wishing to subscribe solely to receive a copy of the GSN Bulletin for their library may join for an annual subscription of £28. Corporate membership is available for a subscription of £50 and is intended for organisations wishing to attend GSN events. This membership grade allows up to five people from the corporate member's staff to attend GSN field visits free of charge and the organisation also receives two copies of the GSN Bulletin each year. In all cases, subscriptions are due on joining and on 1st February annually thereafter .

Our members include ordinary citizens, amateur and professional geologists, teachers and university professors, all with an interest in the Society's aims.

As an amateur Society we aspire to make the topics we discuss as intelligible as possible to ordinary people, only using jargon after we have explained it. We believe this is particularly important as all our lectures are open to the General Public, free of charge.

The Society is also a member of the Geologists' Association which entitles our members to access the G.A.'s library.

There is no requirement for potential members to be resident in Norfolk.
