STEP, as directed by the Society’s bylaws, has made provisions for multiple levels of membership. These levels allow the Society to maintain membership interests that transcend the traditional realm of environmental professionals: the consultant. We have made an allowance for individuals in the following six categories:
Those entities that operate as a company or corporation to provide environmentally related services within the State of Texas. The Corporate Membership allows the identification of one professional as the designate member. Annual dues = $200 per company.
Those persons engaged in environmentally related services and, having a college degree in an environmentally related discipline, and/or practical professional experience in the environmental industry as deemed appropriate by STEP’s Board of Directors. Annual dues = $50 per person.
