Our brand-new 2023 AMS members pin is ready to ship!

As we started last year, we will be producing an annual AMS Members Pin.
The 2023 pin was designed by Dr Jordan Bailey to be sent out to all members joined before 20th May
this year and existing members.

Design inspiration

The 75th meeting of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly chose this year as the Year of the Millets. With a history of over 8,000 years of human consumption, millets serve as an important source of nutrition for millions of people as well as for our livestock.
Due to their stress tolerance, this resilient crop is being promoted by the UN as a valuable a
lly in the fight against world hunger. However, like all plants, millets are attacked by a range of pathogens. This year’s pin focuses our attention on two of these: Sclerospora graminicola and Puccinia substriata var. indica. In our support of the UN sustainability goals, let us as a community support research in fighting these diseases!

AMS membership aims to promote mycology and interaction and collaboration among mycologists from all areas of the science.  A quarterly newsletter, regular conferences and forays are all avenues to bring members together to share their research, network and build the profile of mycology.


We encourage anyone interested in mycology and the aims of the society to apply for membership. 

Several types of membership are offered, including Sustaining Membership, which provides an opportunity for members to make a larger contribution to running the society.  Sustaining members will be listed (with their permission) in the December online newsletter of the AMS.

All individual memberships provide voting rights in Society general meetings. 


In accordance with obligations under the Society’s Constitution, all new applications for membership are subject to ratification by Council.

If you wish to suppress your address on the public register please use this form.
