Become a Member

EPIC is driven by volunteers and community participation. Your membership supports the first professional organization committed to the interests of anyone who seeks to advance the value of ethnography in business, research and nonprofit settings.

Recently we have brought you free professional resources—our outstanding blog PerspectivesJob Board, Business Directory, and our incredible collection of peer-reviewed conference proceedings with over 350 articles—that you can access with a free account. When you become a member, you also gain access to these learning opportunities and resources:

  • Talks—Members can participate in and offer Talks on topics that are highly relevant to us as practitioners, introducing methods, technologies, ideas, and best practices that make our work better and foster meaningful professional connections. All Talks are free for EPIC Members.
  • Courses—In small groups of EPIC colleagues with expert instructors from our community, you can build tools, skills, and expertise that extend your capabilities and amplify the impact of your work. Additional registration fees apply to courses.
  • Video—Access four years of conference video on demand (nearly 200 presentations), including tutorials, keynotes, papers, case studies, and PechaKucha presentations.

We request a minimum contribution of 150 US dollars per person to enjoy full participation in this community. With your support, we will continue to create valuable new opportunities and content for you year-round and across multiple channels. EPIC is your community—and it only works if we all contribute and participate.
