Do I need specific qualifications to become a member of the TEG?

The TEG welcomes membership applications from all those involved or interested in the finance and economics of transport. This includes practioners in transport economics, planning or finance, together with those studying transport economics, finance and planning.

How much does membership cost?

The current annual subscription is £28 regardless of whether you live in the UK or abroad. Students studying full-time in the UK pay only £14 (proof of entitlement is requred). Membership normally runs from January to December each year. For new members joining from September onwards their membership runs until the end of the next calendar year.

How do I apply for membership?

Please contact us either by using the form on the Joining the TEG page of this website or send us an email using the link on that page. You can find Joining the TEG under the Membership menu.

Can non-members attend meetings?

Anyone with an interest in the subject is welcome to attend our regular meetings. Please use the link on the Meetings page to let the Reception Desk at Arup know you will be attending the TEG. We ask non-members to make a small voluntary contribution to our expenses in the box at the back of the room.

As a non-member can I ask the speaker questions or enter into the discussion?

Subject to the agreement of our speaker, everyone at the meeting may participate fully in any Q&A. Be aware that our meetings operate under “Chatham House” rules; all views expressed are those of the speaker or audience member alone and do not necessarily reflect those of the organisation they work for or are affiliated with.

How do I receive details of a speaker’s presentation after the meeting?

TEG members can sign up to be emailed PDF versions of the speaker’s slides after each meeting. (This is subject to the speaker agreeing to the slides being circulated.) Members also receive copies of The Transport Economist journal containing a report of each meeting, including any Q&A session. Non-members will not receive either the slides or the journal.
