Membership Categories

Membership in ESA is one of the best things that you can do for your career in entomology. It is a way for students to stand out from the pack and for career professionals to show their dedication and achievements within their chosen field of study. Our goal is to try and ensure that there is a membership category to meet most membership needs.

Membership in ESA is always based on a calendar year regardless of when you join or renew. As such, it is greatly to your advantage to start your membership as early in the year as possible in order to maximize you benefits.
