Become a Member Society
What We Offer
We welcome scientific societies that want to work in coalition to advance the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior. Member societies interact with FABBS leaders and staff to craft an advocacy agenda each year that draws upon the collective needs of our scientific community. Throughout the year, FABBS also identifies opportunities for our member societies, individually and collectively, to participate in the policy process. The FABBS Executive Director also attends, on a rotating basis, a number of our member society annual meetings to keep abreast of what is important to the society and the science each represents.
As a member, each scientific society designates one or more representatives to serve on the FABBS Council of Representatives. These representatives and other society leaders communicate with FABBS leaders and staff as needed on funding or science policy issues. In addition, the FABBS board and Council of Representatives meet once per year in early December to plan for the coming year. This meeting also provides an opportunity to interact with the FABBS Foundation board members who oversee educational programming and recognition of eminent, senior scientists in our fields.
