Corporate Membership

The BPS welcomes and encourages commercial companies, public agencies and regulatory organisations that use or consider algae in their work to become BPS Corporate Members. The primary mission of the BPS is the training of the next generation of phycologists – potentially your future employees!

The basic annual Corporate Membership rate is £500. The membership year, and associated benefits, run from 1 January to 31 December. If you join between 1 October and 31 December, the membership for the current year will be waived and the membership will run from 1 January of the following year.
