The mission of the Membership Board of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) is to communicate and demonstrate the relevance of the benefits of ASM’s programs and products to scientists around the world working in microbiology. The Board supports the professional development of its members, including those who are underrepresented in the sciences, by providing services such as career placement, mentoring, networking opportunities, and by awarding annual career development grants for postdoctoral women. The Board also provides resources and management support for a robust national network of regional and local professional activities through ASM Branches and Student and Postdoctoral Chapters. In addition, the Board maintains the Center for the History of Microbiology/ASM Archives, thereby preserving the historic contributions of microbiologists and the Society for future generations.
