The Benefits of SSA Membership

At SSA, we know that we need each other to advance earthquake science. The newcomers and the veterans. The authors and the reviewers. The researchers and their advocates.

Everyday our members support one another in our shared mission. They volunteer their time to edit the pages of SSA’s journals, mentor our students and remind the nation’s policymakers why our work matters.

We’re member-driven. That means your voice will be heard, and we’ll explore the topics you care about.

“SSA is a wonderful community to be part of. I have found the meetings to be a great place to connect, to meet and make good friends, and to develop rich collaborations. The journals provide a deep foundation for our scientific activities, as well as an excellent venue for sharing ideas and insights.” —Peggy Hellweg, SSA's 2022-23 President
