Join the Alberta Mycological Society!

We welcome new members! We offer the following membership options:

  1. Individual membership at $30 per year – individuals have access to member only events, such as forays and speaker presentations.
  2. Family membership at $40 per year – this includes a primary member, partner (spouse) and any dependants that still reside in the household; family membership does not include extended family.
  3. Student membership at $15 per year – students may be required to show their student ID cards to attend AMS events.
  4. Corporate membership at $50 per year – two members designated by a business/corporation will receive email notifications about AMS events. We require all corporate members to comply with applicable laws. All corporate membership applications are reviewed by the board and must be approved. Corporate benefits, such as advertising in the AMS Spore Print newsletter, social media platforms, and website, are currently under review.

All memberships are valid for 1 year from the date of purchase. Member benefits include:

  • Up to 4 digital newsletters during the year (Spore Print) with interesting articles, recipes, and event details.
  • Email notifications of upcoming events (e.g. forays, workshops, updates, virtual presentations, etc.). Note that all forays are limited to members only.
  • Special events registration and payment via our website, such as AGM, President’s Dinner, Great Alberta Mushroom Foray.

All membership applications are subject to review and approval by the AMS Board. All AMS activities are led by volunteer members. Please be patient when communicating with us. We will respond to your enquiries as soon as our volunteer hours permit. Thank you.

Important: Membership payment is required to complete your membership registration.



Please Contact Us  if you encounter any issues or problems with membership.

We are also able to receive manual registration and renewal forms via email or standard Canada Post. Instructions are found on the Membership Form.

Please note: Choosing Canada Post takes significantly more time for the AMS to receive your payment and input the information into our system. We appreciate your patience!
