The benefits of membership include:

SEERS has recently changed its membership policy: starting Jan. 1, 2018, annual dues secure your membership for the 12-month period after joining rather than the calendar year. This will especially benefit new members that join in the fall, who will now receive a full 12 months of membership rather than the remainder of the calendar year.

SEERS is pleased to announce our new Member Services site at, where you may pay dues and keep your member profile current; register for meetings; donate to student support services such as our travel awards; and access members-only services such as the Member Directory. Viewing some content on this site, such as the Jobs Listings, will require login with your Wild Apricot account credentials.

Current SEERS members should already be in our database and have their renewal dates set to their last date of payment. Please LOGIN TO MEMBER SERVICES to check your profile information and renewal date and to pay dues if you need to renew. If you have not logged in before and need a password, you may request one by choosing “forgot password” on the login form. Every effort has been made to update the membership records and payment dates, but if you believe your renewal date is in error, please contact the SEERS Secretary and provide proof of payment (e.g., dated receipt from SEERS or CERF, canceled check, credit card statement).

You will be able to maintain your member profile and monitor your membership and payment status through the Member Services website. Automated reminders will be sent starting 30 days prior to your renewal date. Accounts that are not renewed by 30 days past the renewal date will be considered lapsed, and membership benefits will not be available.

Members who wish to do so may pay dues for up to two years at the current rate by paying for the next year and immediately renewing for the following year. Students, please do not renew at the student rate past your expected year of graduation.

SEERS dues are separate from membership in our parent organization, the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation (CERF), and are not refundable. SEERS shares its membership information with CERF. By joining SEERS and providing your email address, you agree to receive emails from SEERS and CERF. Occasionally, CERF rents portions of its membership mailing list to select commercial and nonprofit organizations for one-time use. Permission to use this list is granted by CERF only if the intended mailing benefits our members and conveys important information regarding industry and professional development. When you join or renew, you will be asked if you want to opt in to these additional mailings.

Please address questions about maintaining your profile to the Secretary; about payment status to the Treasurer; and about technical difficulties using the Member Services site to the Webmaster.
