The Conference for Food Protection has a place for you in its representative and equitable partnership of regulators, industry members, consumers, and academics. Anyone may be a member of the Conference, but we are united by our common interest in the safe delivery of food in retail settings.

Membership in the Conference for Food Protection allows one to apply to participate on Committees and Councils. Payment of dues is required ($100 for all or any portion of each 2-year cycle from the start of one biennial meeting to another). Registration for a biennial meeting automatically includes dues payment for the new biennium. If a member misses a biennial meeting, payment of dues for the subsequent biennium is required to retain active membership status.
