Reviewing SEJ’s Bylaws and Membership Categories With an Eye Toward the Future

Image of Sadie BabitsSEJ board president Sadie Babits has been thinking about you, SEJ’s members, who are at the core of this organization. It’s because of you that we are here, and it’s also why we are looking at our membership categories to make sure they best represent the work environmental journalists do today and the evolution of our industry. We’re eager to hear from SEJ members of all categories; here's how.

SEJ's 31st Annual Conference

#SEJ2022 Houston, Texas   |   March 30-April 3

#SEJ2022 conference logoSEJ's 31st Annual Conference in Houston, hosted by Rice University, is a wrap! The #SEJ2022 conference focused on environmental health and justice, energy and climate change, and oceans and coasts. See the multimedia coverage page.

It's critically important to SEJ to gather evidence on the impact of our work. So we're tracking stories inspired by or informed by our conference in Houston. The stories don't have to be about Houston or Texas; they can be based on sources or ideas you got from being at the conference. Please help us to keep SEJ strong and share links, photos, copies of reporting generated or informed by this conference. Send your story links to Cindy MacDonald, SEJ's Web content manager.
