The BGA Early Career Group (ECG) is a group for professionals that focusses on the interests of students, graduates and recently professionally qualified members, i.e. those at the early stage of their career in Geotechnical Engineering. There are currently two hubs for the ECG, London hub and the newly formed South West hub.
The ECG provides an opportunity for training, knowledge sharing, debate, and networking. The group aspires to build a strong network between it’s members and the wider geotechnical engineering community, and to represent the views of early career members to the BGA. Each ECG hub aims to hold 4-5 events every year, including our chartership professional review event, a must for anyone aspiring to gain chartership with the Institution of Civil Engineers.
ECG events and activities are publicised through our mailing list, to sign up visit our Membership page. There is no additional charge for BGA members to join the ECG.
The new ECG Committee in our London and South West hubs have been formed for 2021-2023, however we are always looking for active members to help us shape the future of the ECG. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to express an interest, and/or join us in our upcoming events to find out more.
