Regional Councils

EAGE Regional Council Middle East (RCME) exists to support EAGE activities in the Middle East region including the identification of members' needs and the delivery of services to members. The RCME also assists with the promotion of the society and its activities (such as membership, meetings and publications). The RCME is a balanced representation of the geoscientific population in the region, with members drawn from companies, universities and other organizations of practicing geoscientists and engineers. In selecting members, consideration is given to diversity of representation, in accordance with the EAGE Constitution.

EAGE RCME advises, reviews and contributes to all relevant activities of the EAGE Regional Office Middle East (ROME) including the development of activity plans, strategies and policies. Once the RCME and ROME have agreed a plan for activities, it is submitted to the EAGE Board for final approval. EAGE would like to sincerely thank all the current and previous council members for their support and dedication to the association.
