Membership

The Society for the Study of Evolution has several options for membership. Our main area of expertise is in supporting professional scientists and their students, but we also encourage K-12, community college educators, and affiliated professionals to join us in our mission. Memberships are for a calendar year, January 1 – December 31. You may join and/or renew your membership online with a credit card or by mail. Come be part of a worldwide community that promotes the study of organic evolution!
To renew your membership or join the Society, please go to https://payments.evolutionsociety.org/joinsse/.

To join or renew by mail, please us this form, 2014 SSE Membership Form (.pdf)

You can now give a gift membership to a student for $10. This is a great way to introduce students to the Society for the first time. Gift memberships can also be purchased for colleagues in developing nations at the same low rate of $10. You can do this at the same time as your renewal or at a later date. https://payments.evolutionsociety.org/joinsse/.
If you have any problems, please contact us at sse-manager@evolutionsociety.org.

Thanks!
The SSE staff team.
