Member Benefits

One Community. One Mission.

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. We’ll explore the topics you care about. We’ll be here for you in challenging times.
