SERC's Corporate Leaders Program includes business leaders across the Chesapeake who have stepped up to support our mission of scientific discovery and environmental literacy. By becoming a SERC Corporate Leader,  you're showing your organization's commitment to helping create a more sustainable world through the power of science. Corporate Leaders also receive some exclusive benefits, including networking events with fellow environmental leaders, special use of SERC's campus and facilities, and invitations to exhibit previews and other Smithsonian Corporate Member events. Membership requires an annual gift of $2,500. To join, contact Cole Johnson at johnsonc@si.edu or 443-482-2323.
