Help grow your professional society’s membership

ASCB Members

Members of the American Society for Cell Biology are our greatest strength. What better way to bolster your Society than by growing its membership? From July 1 to September 30, ASCB will host our first-ever Member-Get-A-Member Program.

Here’s how it works: Tell your colleagues why ASCB—the preeminent international community for cell biologists—is your professional home. Discuss our phenomenal annual meetings where you can learn about the latest advances in the biology of the cell. Tell them how ASCB has helped advance your career through our exclusive professional development programs. Explain how ASCB works on your behalf to inform and guide science policy by meeting with members of Congress.  Let them know about ASCB’s new members-only online community platform where you can connect and collaborate with peers around the corner or across the globe. Then invite them to apply for membership.

Membership is rewarding!

When your referral lists you on their membership application, both you and this new member will receive a $10 Amazon gift card. Any membership category qualifies, but the member must be NEW and not a RENEWAL. The new member must remember to list you on their membership forms.

After you have invited 5-9 new members who join, you will receive a 1-year complimentary ASCB membership.

When you invite 10 or more members who join, you will receive a complimentary registration to the 2019 ASCB|EMBO Annual Meeting to be held in Washington, DC, December 7-11.

Other key member benefits

As you talk with your colleagues about ASCB, other key member benefits you could mention include:

  • Discounts on our annual and regional meeting registration fees
  • Free subscription to our research journal Molecular Biology of the Cell (MBoC) and discounts on MBoC publishing fees
  • Qualification for member-only honorific awards and grants
  • Training webinars and resources
  • A printed copy of the bimonthly ASCB Newsletter
  • Access to free resume, CV, and cover letter review services and to the ASCB job board

So don’t delay. Share your passion for cell biology and for the world’s largest cell science professional organization.
