The Society welcomes as members biologists, mathematicians, statisticians, and others interested in applying similar techniques.
Individuals usually join as regular members. The Society also operates a student and senior retiree membership. Applicants for all classes of membership must be approved by the appropriate Regional or National Secretary or, in the case of applicants for At-Large membership, by the General Secretary.
