  • A copy of the ISAM Bytes and other information will be funneled through the Society contact person/email.
  • Affiliate Society members will be entitled to a reduction in registration fees for the annual ISAM meetings as set by the Local Organizing Committee of that event as well as a reduced fee for the Certification Examination.
