ISAPP is a non-profit, public-service corporation run by a Board of Directors. Since ISAPP is
not a member-run organization, it does not have membership for individuals in the same
way other scientific societies do. The ISAPP Board of Directors steers the organization, with
input from Industry Advisory Board members, to accomplish ISAPP’s mission.

Everyone is welcome to stay up-to-date on the organization’s activities by signing up to
receive our monthly newsletter and updates. Companies aligned with ISAPP’s mission to
advance the science of probiotics and prebiotics or with an interest in fermented foods or
gut health may become members of ISAPP.

Benefits for members

Members appoint up to two representatives to ISAPP’s Industry Advisory Committee. This
group advises ISAPP on issues of interest to probiotics and prebiotics and helps shape the
organization’s activities.

Members also have access to the organization’s annual meetings, which are not typically
open to everyone. Attendance is usually restricted to globally-recognized academic experts
invited for their knowledge of the probiotic and microbiome topics being addressed at the
meeting, as well as Industry Advisory Committee members.
