SETAC loyalty badge

Loyalty Program

SETAC cherishes its loyal members and offers extra benefits to those who continue their membership year after year.

Full members with a continued membership of more than one year will be awarded the loyalty badge and receive a discount on meeting registration fees.

If you were a SETAC member before the transition to the new membership model in June of 2023, you were automatically promoted to Loyal Full Member during the transition to the new system and can benefit from these reductions right away! Furthermore, any new member joining SETAC with a full paid 3-year membership, will also automatically obtain the loyalty status and benefit from the reductions. 

You will retain your loyalty status as long as you keep your full membership active and don't let it lapse.
