The Association's membership year is on an anniversary year. Membership dues will renew annually on the anniversary of your original application. A one-time $50 application fee is currently waived.
Memberships are held by the individual, not by a company. Therefore, even if your company has paid for your membership, if you leave that company, your membership belongs to you. Be sure to keep your member profile up-to-date with your current contact information so we can reach you!
SEAOSC SE and PE Members can opt-in to the Referral Program for $100 annually during dues renewals, July 1- August 31. You may opt-in anytime by contacting the SEAOSC office at firstname.lastname@example.org. A listing will appear on seaosc.org/referral which includes your name, license number, business address with corresponding Google map, and your selected categories.
While California does note have mandatory continuing education for your license renewal, SEAOSC created this voluntary program to recognize and record members’ seminar attendance. You can enroll for $50 annually during dues renewals (July -Sept).
Credit is issued for your attendance at qualifying dinner meetings, seminars and educational events based on 1 credit for each contact hour of continuing education. Thus, dinner meetings are worth one credit and educational programs are worth 1 credit for each hour of instruction.
Certificates are not issued for any program that qualifies as 1 credit (i.e. dinner meetings). The SEAOSC office maintains the attendance records of each participant in the program and in July issues a statement of participation indicating the participant’s total credits at the end of each year. The program year coincides with SEAOSC’s fiscal year: July 1- June 30.
Note: PD Credits are good only for SEAOSC programs, not SEAOC, etc. Some states that require continuing education for license renewal may not accept these credits. Non-members do not receive credit; members not enrolled in this program do not receive seminar credit. Credits are not issued retroactively.
