Because joining SEJ requires eligibility criteria to be met, figure it will take a few days for your application to be screened. If you apply on a weekend or after business hours, it will likely take longer. 

SEJ welcomes everyone to create an account on, tell us who you are, and browse our site — but only journalists, professors, students and others working in areas closely related to journalism are eligible for membership in the Society of Environmental Journalists.

For more information about eligibility, see SEJ's Bylaws and Membership Policies.

If you're accepted for membership, your profile will be added to the online SEJ member directory. From your profile, you can opt into the freelance directory, locate other SEJ members and keep your contact information info up to date.  Questions? Email SEJ's Associate Director, Chris Bruggers.
