How to Join
Involvement in committees and professional development groups (PDGs) offers Members the opportunity to share a wealth of knowledge and expertise. Members of committees and PDGs are the architects of the Association structure. They plan, develop and institute many of the Association's projects, including workshops, publications and educational sessions. Technical challenges facing the food safety industry are discussed, examined and debated. Members may volunteer to serve on any number of committees or PDGs that plan and implement activities to meet the Association's mission.
Special Committees provide support services to IAFP on a continuous basis. Individuals are recommended by the Chairperson, subject to the Executive Board's review. Membership appointments are for 3-year terms. Requests for membership should be directed to the Chairperson.
