Regular members will receive Bulletin and Newsletter free of charge and are eligible to participate in the affairs of the Society and vote on issues.

Honorary MembershipAn honorary membership may be conferred upon regular members who have long served in the field of vector ecology. Honorary members shall pay no dues and are entitled to the same privileges as regular members.

Sustaining Membership: Any agency or organization who desires to contribute financially to the purpose and objectives of this Society may become a sustaining member by paying annual dues as set by the Board each year. Names of sustaining members will be listed once a year in both the Newsletter and annual program of SOVE. Sustaining members have the same rights and privileges as regular members except they cannot vote or hold office.

Student Membership: Any student enrolled full-time in a college or university is eligible to become a student member.
