How to Become a Member

The SDC has two types of members: Full Members and Friends.

Full Members are Representatives of a foreign government or research entity in the U.S. who have a (partial) focus on science, technology and higher education. A member may choose to become an individual Full Member for $30 a year if he or she eligible. Foreign entities may also become institutional members for the rate of $100 a year, which will allow Full Membership rights for up to 5 people within the institution.

Friends  are former presenters at science breakfast meetings, U.S. counterparts in the D.C. area and former members who are no longer working in their (diplomatic) position but reside in the D.C. A Friend does not pay annual dues and may participate in SDC events.

To become a full member or a Friend, you can contact us here and we will get back to you.
