How to Join SCI

Joining SCI is very easy. There are two ways to join, by postal mail, or online using PayPal®.

By Mail

Individuals wishing to join SCI by postal mail should download the Membership Application (PDF), complete the form, and enclose a check for the correct amount. Use the membership form if you are joining SCI for yourself or an institution. You may also use this form if you are renewing your current membership although a form is unnecessary if your contact infomation remains the same.

Return your application form with your membership fee to:

Society of Composers, Inc.
P.O. Box 687
Mineral Wells, TX 76068-0687 USA

Checks and money orders must be drawn in U.S. funds on a prime U.S. bank and made payable to The Society of Composers, Inc.



Instantly use Paypal® to become an SCI member. Individuals using this method do not need to download the application form. Please note that a $2 service charge will apply when using this option.

Paypal® is a secure and convenient way to purchase goods online. You don't need to have an existing Paypal® account -- You may pay immediately via credit card! If you experience any difficulties, please contact Gerald Warfield.
