Join us

SDA’s membership includes, but is in no way limited to, demographers with professional or personal ties to the southern United States. SDA welcomes and encourages the participation of individuals, and the study of demographic topics, from any region or country.

Annual membership is included in the annual conference registration fee. If you are not joining us at the annual conference you can still join or renew your membership here.

Individuals who have previously attended a meeting or had been a member at some time in the past few years should be able to log into the SDA website to check their status. Anyone having problems logging into the SDA website, or having any other questions, should notify Gerald Shoultz at to have the problem investigated and resolved.

Membership Benefits - Voting

Individuals who joined or renewed SDA membership in 2024, either by attending the 2023 annual meeting or renew prior to May 1, 2024, will officially be considered SDA members in good standing for election purposes for the 2024 calendar year and will be eligible to vote in the upcoming SDA election. We expect this election to take place no later than June 1, 2024 (as per the bylaws).
