Our Member Societies serve the microbiology community through providing resources, building capacity, and stimulating collaboration. Microbiological societies can apply to become a FEMS Member Society, but individuals can apply to become a member of a FEMS Member Society. If you are a member of one of our Member Societies, then your Society can pass on the unique member benefits to your membership by being a part of FEMS
