The Society of Christian Ethics welcomes new members annually. There are two categories of membership: full and student.
Full membership in the Society is open to persons in the following groups: (1) college, university, or seminary teachers of Christian ethics or social ethics; (2) persons teaching in similar institutions in other fields who are concerned with the relation of Christian ethics to their subject matter; (3) persons whose full-time professional work in church, government, social agency or elsewhere is related to the purposes of the Society. Candidates for membership must have at least one of the following: a Ph.D. or equivalent degree or scholarly publications in the above-named fields, or a full-time teaching position in ethics or related fields in an accredited institution of higher learning.
Student membership is open to graduate students in ethics or related fields upon matriculation into a doctoral program. This status ordinarily may be retained for not more than ten years.
Detailed membership eligibility information is available in Article III of the SCE By-laws. If you meet these criteria, we invite you to complete the application form. Benefits of membership include reduced registration rate at the annual meeting, eligibility to submit proposals for the annual meeting and therefore to be published in the Journal of the Society, and most importantly, a broad network of fellow scholars and others in the field of ethics.
You either do not have an SCE user account, or you are not logged in. Please log in or request access using the login fields to the left.
Members of the SCE have expertise in a wide variety of issues and topics. To make this expertise available, the SCE encourages journalists and other members of the press to contact our members individually for informed, quotable perspectives. You are invited to create an account so you can access members’ names, institutions and areas of interest/expertise. From that account, you will be able to send an email to the relevant person, who of course may choose either to respond or not respond. We will monitor how this new and experimental feature works, so please give us your feedback.

Generally, proposals may be submitted online soon after the Annual Meeting, and registration for the next meeting opens in September. Proposal submissions for the 2014 annual meeting are currently being accepted until March 22, 2013. Links are available to submit or register online.
