About SMA Membership  

There are two ways to remain engaged and involved with SMA on an ongoing basis. Both forms of engagement offer access to all SMA opportunities, programs and initiatives. We look forward to getting to know you!   

Signing Up as a Network Member 

A network member can access everything we have to offer, including peer researcher role openings, listening campaigns, programs, workshops, and campaign-related opportunities. However, a network member cannot vote, attend the annual AGM, and are not eligible for nomination to the board of directors.  

You will remain on our email list until you opt out of email communications or inform us directly that you wish to be removed. All network members will receive regular email communications from us. 

If you wish to join as a voting member please let us know and we will be in touch about our special orientation for voting members. 

To join us please email [email protected] while our new sign-up form is in development.

Further Information

As per SMA bylaws, staff and contractors compensated by the organization cannot remain voting members. All voting members who take on compensated roles with SMA, such as peer researchers and other ongoing project-related roles, are non-voting participants until their compensated contracts with the organization are over. Once a compensated project-related contract with SMA is over, one can return to being a voting member. 

Our annual membership renewal process takes place in February. 

Can I switch between being a network member and a voting network member?

If you are a network member and wish to apply to become a voting member you can do so at any time during the year. Please email [email protected].
