4. Thinking about becoming a member of the Armed Forces Biomedical Society? Click on member signup button on top left of this webpage. FYI: We have a Remote ($10) and-or Full membership ($25) option. The Remote Membership was intended for those individuals that don't live-work in the Fort Detrick area (not enough time to drive to attend meetings on a regular basis). This is a relatively new type of membership that was implemented based on feedback from DoD BMET's and Engineers from all around the country that simply wanted to support the AFBS because of their training-employment background. Our future goal is to enhance what is provided to our Remote member via the website. The Full Membership is mainly for the individuals that work or live in the Fort Detrick area and are usually able to attend all our scheduled quarterly society meetings-training-BBQ events.
