Supporting AOAC keeps your organization at the forefront of analytical science and builds your recognition as a leader in food safety.

Organizational Members are instrumental in AOAC’s work to identify, prioritize, and solve global and local food safety testing challenges. By working with AOAC and other key stakeholders, such as industry, regulators, and academia, Organizational Members advance analytical science through cooperative problem-solving. 

In 2019, AOAC adopted a new membership model to boost member value and engagement, while ensuring the association’s fiscal health. The new model lowers individual membership fees, introduces new organizational membership tiers, and allows members to choose the services, programs, and publications that benefit them most.

Organizational Membership programs and benefits

Organizational Memberships range from Supporter through Ambassador, and each of the six tiers includes a corresponding array of bundled individual memberships, subscriptions, discounted services and publications, and other benefits. Individual memberships included in Organizational Memberships are transferable within the organization.
