SEJ Membership Categories:
ASSOCIATE: Individuals substantially engaged in journalism or who work in fields that closely relate to journalism yet are ineligible for active membership, either because journalism is not the primary occupation or because the applicant's employer lobbies or conducts public relations work relating to environmental issues, and, in the majority opinion of the Board of Directors or its designee(s), will contribute to the attainment of the objectives of the Society. Associate Members shall not engage in lobbying or public relations work relating to environmental issues.
Am I eligible?
SEJ membership is open to journalists, and students and faculty at an accredited school or university. Those whose professional work includes public relations on environmental issues, or lobbying for environmental issues, are not eligible for membership in SEJ. For more information about eligibility, see SEJ's Bylaws and Membership Policies.
