10 Good Reasons to be an SBSE Member

Becoming a member is simple ... as is managing your membership profile through our

Membership Portal (

Membership registartion and payments are handled through the membership portal at, which is powered by Wild Apricot and at this point requires a separate account from the open user accounts at our main website. Make sure all your info is current. You will also be able to see the entire active membership list with contact info for everyone in our network. You have the option of paying via PayPal, credit card, or by check. If you need assistance contact our Secretary/Treasurer at

Resources Portal (

The resources portal is integrated into our main public website:

  • Some content requires a user account to access restricted content that is protected based on user role. To sign up for such an user account, which you can have independent of a society membership, please go to
  • If you would like to have access to SBSE member-only content, you will need to have an active (dues paid) membership as well.
    his role will be assigned by a moderator once your account is approved and your membership status has been verified.
  • If you would like to have access to Educator-only content, you can request such a role, which again will have to be verified and assigned by a moderator based on a public site that shows your affiliation status.

For more information regarding the different types of content provided through the portal see Restricted Content. If you need assistance contact our Webmaster at
