Click on 'Print Membership Forms'
This will give you a list of links specific to your location, US, Australia,
New Zealand, Other International. From there, just print and use the
I've done the on-line membership process. It's not difficult and even
handles your family members' memberships as part of the same process.
You were given good information in the other responses. You don't have to
join right away.some people never officially join, yet play extensively.
Also, once your membership application is in, you'll be part of the Barony
closest to your zip code. HOWEVER, you are NOT limited to playing in that
Barony. You can attend meetings and events anywhere that you like. I live
in one Barony, but on the far side of that Barony's bounds and far from most
of their activities. As a result, I mostly play in another Barony, the
activities of which are very close to my home. I also play with a College
group as I like the group and the things that they do. Whatever makes you
happy, that's what you do in the SCA.

Subject: [SCA Newcomers] Joining SCA
I have a basic question, which may seem silly to some. How do I join the
SCA? Now I have looked over the SCA websites extensively, but still do not
understand the process specifically. I live in New Hampshire, so I am
looking to become part of the Barony of Stonemarche. But do I join THROUGH
Stonemarche? Or do I join THROUGH the East Kingdom? Or do I join THROUGH the
SCA worldwide? I just can't seem to find a membership application to
download that has "Stonemarche" I can check off. Where do I send the money
to? It's not that I do not understand reenacting, I am an experienced
reenactor and I help new members coming into my own reenacting group (of
another era). But the SCA membership seems confusing, at least compared to
all other living history.
