Apply to Become an AAALAC International Member Organization

What it means to be an AAALAC International Member Organization

AAALAC International Member Organizations are a select group of prestigious scientific, professional and educational organizations with an interest in advancing biomedical research and animal well-being in science and education. Each Member Organization appoints a representative to serve as an AAALAC International Member Organization Delegate.

By actively involving major scientific, educational and professional organizations, AAALAC International makes sure that members of the scientific community understand and support the AAALAC International accreditation program.

The benefits of becoming a Member Organization

Becoming an AAALAC International Member Organization demonstrates your constituents' commitment to responsible animal care and use. It's an opportunity to join with other respected groups to communicate that good animal welfare is critical to quality science.

Membership fosters networking with scientists from other disciplines, veterinarians with expertise in research animal medicine and research advocacy groups. It also offers a chance to help shape AAALAC International's programs and policies.

Responsibilities

As a Member Organization, in accordance with our Bylaws, you will appoint one representative to serve as an AAALAC International Member Organization Delegate for a three-year term. Your Delegate acts as a liaison between your organization and AAALAC International. Delegates have the opportunity to advise AAALAC International on its programs and activities, vote on behalf of their organizations, participate (in person or electronically) in the annual meeting, and disseminate information about AAALAC International to their organization's membership. Your organization is responsible for any travel costs incurred to send your Delegate to AAALAC International's annual meeting which is usually held in Bethesda, Maryland (close to Washington, D.C.), in September.
