Invitation to MSA Membership
Mycologists, students of the Fungi, mycologues, mycophiles, fungal biologists, and all persons with a personal or professional interest in fungi are cordially invited to apply for membership in the Mycological Society of America, the international professional organization that is home to mycologists based in the United States and Canada. The MSA has members from more than 40 countries, who come from academic, industrial, medical, governmental, and amateur backgrounds.
The Society’s constitution states that “The purpose of the Society is to promote and advance the science of mycology and to foster and encourage research and education in mycology in all its aspects… Membership in the Society shall be open to persons or organizations who share the stated purposes of the Society.” We welcome applications for membership from all interested persons who share our goals.

Applications can also be found in each issue of Mycologia. If you require additional information or assistance with membership matters, or for institutional subscriptions to Mycologia, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to receiving your application for membership in the Mycological Society of America!
Membership in the MSA provides an opportunity to stay current with new research on fungi via the Society’s journal, “Mycologia“, a leader in the field, and also to learn about meetings, publications, regulatory developments, controversies, and other current activities in mycology around the world via the MSA’s newsletter “Inoculum“. Both publications are available to members online and as hard-copies. The MSA sponsors many other activities and programs, including our annual meeting, where researchers gather to exchange the latest information on all aspects of the fungi.
