Find Your Local Group and Activities
You are not required to buy a membership before you start attending practices, meetings, and events, however, members do receive discounts on event entry fees. Paid membership is a requirement for holding an SCA office, and in some kingdoms you must have a membership in order to take part in combat activities and to be eligible to receive awards.

Paid Members get these Benefits!
- Discounts on event admission fees
- Membership card – check in at events quickly by presenting your card
- Voting privileges in your local group – polls on local group matters are sent to those on the membership list
- SCA Publications – while the kingdom newsletters and Board Minutes can be accessed publically, paid members have the option to subscribe to paper versions, as well as subscribing to Tournaments Illuminated (the quarterly magazine of the Society), and the Compleat Anachronist booklet series.
Additionally, your fees help support the SCA infrastructure, including worldwide liability coverage for our chapters, and the ability to maintain consistent rules and standards throughout the Society.
