The Early Career Professionals Committee (ECPC) was established in 2016 with the aim of representing the interests of SEG members within the first 10 years of their economic geology careers as well as assisting with the implementation of Society and Foundation initiatives designed to benefit early career professionals. The committee consists of volunteers who are all passionate about supporting the professional development of senior students and graduates, and they work towards providing members with access to events, programs, and online content that can be used to bridge the gap between university and professional life.
Reporting directly to the SEG Council, the ECPC is responsible for advising on matters concerning early career professionals within the economic geology sector, whether members be working in industry, academia, or government. The group also is tasked with proposing innovative ways that SEG can support the talent, network, and skills development of ECPs, and subsequently contributing to the organisation of relevant opportunities.
Read the ECPC Charter
The ECPC comprises between 6 and 8 early career professionals from across the economic geology world who sit for 3-year terms. Each year, the committee members vote to elect a Chair who subsequently leads the group and directs its collective efforts; for the benefit of continuity and an effective handover, the outgoing Chair retains the position of immediate Past Chair. In addition to geographic representation, each committee member is also assigned a particular role/remit which helps provide focus and accountability. Finally, the committee aims to meet roughly once a quarter and summary reports are submitted to the SEG Council at the annual SEG Conference and PDAC Convention.
The ECPC is always on the look-out for enthusiastic and passionate people who want to join our team and contribute to our goals.
