JOIN: Qualifications for Membership

When you join the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW), you are among the largest organization of business newspeople in the world, more than 3,400 members in the United States and Canada.

Those eligible for membership are persons for whom a significant part of their occupation involves writing, reporting, editing or overseeing business, financial or economic news for newspapers, magazines, newsletters, journals, books, press or syndicated services, radio or television, online publications, or other media approved by the SABEW Board of Governors and to teachers and students of business journalism or business media subjects at recognized colleges or universities or other organizations approved by the Society’s board.

If your request for membership is denied, you will receive a refund of your membership dues. A member may retain full membership status after being assigned to another news position at news organizations, even if the new position is not directly involved in business news, or if he or she leaves journalism entirely, so long as his or her dues remain current.

Questions about new memberships or renewals may be directed to Spring Eselgroth, membership coordinator, at 602-496-5188, or eselgroth@sabew.org.
