Membership Benefits

Anyone involved in the function of Life Support System operations, at any level, whether beginner or expert, operator or vendor, will benefit from membership in AALSO. Membership entitles the individual to become a part of an amazing exchange of information on the daily maintenance and care of aquatic animal life support systems. Additional opportunities are presented at the annual AALSO Symposium to become a Certified Operator at several different levels, thereby providing additional credentials to those operators who have demonstrated their knowledge and proficiency in their industry.

Individual Member
Operators that become members of AALSO are offered the unique opportunity to discuss many topics on LSS with other operators from many different facilities around the world. Members share experiences and knowledge with one another regardless of their association with a particular facility. This is a rare information exchange network unlike any other in any other industry. In addition, you will obtain exposure to specific equipment and service vendors that have experience and knowledge in the application of their particular equipment and/or service as applied to LSS operations.
Vendor Member
Vendors that become members of AALSO benefit from the unique one-on-one relationships that develop between the vendors and the operators, which may contribute to additional sales opportunities in upcoming projects. Additional benefits are received in the feedback received, from an operator’s perspective, on the vendors’ equipment and/or service as it applies to LSS operation. The AALSO Symposium is held annually, and is largely supported by the vendors that sell to this industry. Held at some of the country’s premier aquarium and zoos, this symposium offers one-on-one face time with the people that operate, specify and purchase equipment and services for this industry.
