Society Name Change Vote

The PESGB is a society that continues to develop and provide services to members with the same passion it started out with, in 1964. The industry has evolved since the society began and continues to do so, with the members and their careers continually adapting and responding to the changing energy landscape.

In response to this change, we are asking the membership to vote on whether the name of the society should change too, to reflect the new charitable objects and the present and future roles of our members.

New charitable objects are:

To advance, for the public benefit, education in the scientific and technical aspects of subsurface energy and related technologies

The vote will open on the Monday 11 July 2022 and remain open until Monday 8 August 2022 to give all members the opportunity to vote.

The first question to be asked of the members will be whether you agree with changing the name of the society. The second question pertains to the two choices put forward by the Name Change Working Group.

These are:

  • Geoscience Energy Society of Great Britain (GESGB)
  • Energy Geoscientists Association (EGA)

The PESGB is committed to giving the members a voice in the future of their society. This vote will be conducted by Survey Monkey and will be open to the entire membership. Each member only receives one vote, any duplicate votes will not be counted, and the original vote will be disqualified.
