Welcome to the AIG’s Early Career Geoscientist page

 

AIG’s National Graduate Group

The National Graduate Group (NGG) is a new initiative by the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG) to better communicate with its graduate and student members. Graduate members of the AIG were nominated by each state, who now sit on the National Graduate Committee (NGC) and are responsible for generating and implementing NGG initiatives to improve communication and engagement by:

  • Increasing student and graduate membership and assist in the transition to professional membership;
  • Promoting interaction between all members;
  • Providing progressive communication to student and graduate members; and
  • Encouraging continued education and training.

The NGG, supporting our next generation of geoscientists!
