Before You Begin

SEG begins its annual dues renewal process in September of each year. If you join before August 31, your membership will expire on December 31 of that same year. If you wait and join on/after September 1, your membership will be valid through December 31 of the following year (you will also receive access to SEG member benefits for the remainder of the current year). Print subscriptions to Economic Geology and/or SEG Newsletter will begin the following year. If you have any questions, please contact

Before applying, please review the Membership Requirements section on the Benefits of Membership page to ensure you qualify for membership.
