In 1971 the Proceedings took the format they do today as an A5 design with simple colour band. Volume 4 (1977-78) saw the introduction of the new Society Logo – a representation of the Gastroceras cumbriense. Proceedings are published on a bi-annual basis, members can read reports on the excursions, visits and lectures from the previous months.
Between 1971 and 2009 the society published five volumes. Within these are 103 original papers, over 90 of which are on Cumbrian topics. In addition the Proceedings have recorded 50 summer field excursion seasons in well over 350 individual localities across the wider region.
