CAPEES membership is an essential part of being in the CAPEES community and it offers substantial benefits and opportunities to its members. Environmental engineering and science (EES) scholars, students, and professionals are all welcome to join CAPEES. While CAPEES was established by a group of Chinese-American who work in the EES profession in the US, it has attracted members around the world over the years.

Membership Fee and Donation
Membership fee will be used to support the operation of CAPEES, organization of workshops and CAPEES activities, and potentially awards to CAPEES members. There are five categories of membership as described below:
Early-career member ($100 one-time payment): An early-career member of CAPEES is typically an individual who presently holds a full-time tenure-track faculty appointment, or a position deemed equivalent by the Membership Committee, in the field of EES in a higher education institution in North America. An early-career member pays a one-time membership due of $100, regardless of the entry point in the tenure track. When an early-career member leaves tenure-track faculty position in North America, the early-career membership expires, and the member becomes an affiliate member without extra payment. When regular members acquire tenure, they have the option to become lifetime members by paying a one-time membership due as described in Bylaw Section 4.3.
Lifetime member ($500 one-time payment): A lifetime member of CAPEES shall be an individual who, at the time of remitting life membership dues, holds a full-time tenured faculty appointment in the field of EES in a higher education institution in North America. Lifetime members are entitled to all membership privileges even after retirement from their academic positions. A lifetime member pays a one-time membership due of $500.
Student/postdoc member ($10 one-time payment): A student/postdoc member of CAPEES is typically an individual who presently is a student or post-doctoral scholar in the field of EES in a higher education institution in North America. A student/postdoc member pays a one-time membership due of $10, and their membership is valid as long as they keep student/postdoc status.
Affiliate member ($50 one-time payment): An affiliate member of CAPEES is typically an individual who presently is either (a) a professor in the field of EES in a higher education institution outside North America, or (b) a research scientist, engineer, educator, consultant, or government officer in the field of EES. An affiliate member pays a one-time membership due of $50.
Honorary member: Honorary members shall be individuals who are not CAPEES members but have made major contributions to promoting the development of CAPEES, CAPEES members, or the broad CAPEES community. Honorary members shall be nominated by the Membership Committee and approved by the Board of Directors. Honorary members do not need to pay membership dues.
