Join forces with your colleagues in an international society that addresses technical, policy, educational, and management issues with a coastal focus. A key part of the mission of The Coastal Society (TCS) is to provide professional education and development to members through communication and education. To accomplish that mission, TCS offers you the following benefits of membership:
Share your experience and research at the international biennial conferences of The Coastal Society. Participate in the development of better strategies for addressing your coastal concerns with experts and specialists from a wide variety of disciplines. Awards for significant contributions to coastal management and to The Coastal Society are given at the conference
Receive weekly notification of coastal management jobs, and periodic announcements of upcoming conferences, educational opportunities, and news briefs on coastal issues. Other information is posted to the Members Only section of the web site.
Online Networking Directory
Members complete their own online profiles, select which information to include in a search, and then start connecting with others in this exclusive group of coastal professionals and students. Connect with other TCS members near you, or find someone with expertise you may need.
Share updates, start discussions, find or be a mentor, and more within the LinkedIn group open only to members.
Put to use the information found in the TCS Blog. Articles are written by TCS members, covering topics on coastal news, policy announcements, and research updates, plus regular articles on legal issues, legislative action, international events, and coastal management strategies. Membership also includes online access to past issues of the TCS Bulletin. Keep up with other members via the “Member News” section.
Journal of Coastal Management
Keep abreast of research findings, analysis, tools and techniques as you set policy and manage our coastal resources — and save money at the same time. TCS Regular, Institutional and Corporate membership categories include a subscription to Coastal Management, the international journal of marine environment, resources, law and society.
TCS members or their organizations may offer to make their publications available to the entire TCS membership. Though we won’t provide members or their organizations with the TCS mailing list, we will work with you to help distribute your publication electronically or via mail. Want to share your publication with other members? Just contact us.
