New Members

Prospective members can apply online here or complete this form, scan it and email it to the ASEG's Secretariat.

Please note that prospective members will need to provide referees for consideration for membership. Applications for membership are usually considered monthly. If the membership application is approved, payment will be processed and a tax receipt will be issued via email. Members will be provided with a username and password to login to the website and access the ASEG's journal, Exploration Geophysics.


Graduate members

To serve the ASEG and to support young professionals as they transition from study to employment, the ASEG has a Graduate Membership tier. Under this scheme, membership is subsidised and is available for no more than two years. Members accepting Graduate Membership Grants would be required to write an article for the newsletter and Preview with the goal of raising both their profile and the ASEG's support of young professionals.


Retired Members

Retired membership is available for members who have been members of the ASEG for the immediately preceding ten years prior to their election as a Retired Member. Retired members must have ceased gainful employment within the field for which they were qualified to be either an Active or Associate Member and must be aged over 60.


Student Members

To be eligible for Student Membership, an applicant must be a full-time graduate or undergraduate student in good standing registered at a recognised university or institute. Eligibility for Student Membership shall terminate at the close of the calendar year in which the Student Member ceases to be a graduate or undergraduate student. The duration of a Student Membership is limited to five years.

Students renewing their membership or wishing to join the ASEG should enter their details here. Alternatively, complete this form, scan it and email it to the ASEG's Secretariat.

International Member Groups

The ASEG, like the SEG, uses World Bank country classifications to try and make ASEG membership affordable for international members. Countries are grouped based on gross national income per capita: low-income/lower-middle-income economies (Groups I and II), upper-middle income economies (Group III) and high-income economies (Group (IV). A list of countries in each group is provided here.
