Join as a full member if you are a professional scholar and interested in participating fully in the society. This includes attending and presenting papers at meetings, full access to career resources and participating in the governance of the Society.
Currently enrolled students will receive most of the benefits of a full membership but student members are limited to presentation of one paper per Annual Meeting. Submission of a copy of your student ID is required within two weeks of the start of your membership. Student Member Restrictions
Public memberships are for those interested in the many on-line benefits of SBL membership. Public members are restricted from many aspects of membership and cannot participate in the governance of the Society or propose papers for any SBL meeting although they can attend.
Please note that members
formerly holding ICI membership will select the rate appropriate for
them from the table above and renew their membership online, by fax, or by
phone. Learn more about the International
Cooperation Initiative (ICI).
