"I joined the Society for Cryobiology in January 2018. I am not sure why I did not apply for membership before, as I have been attending the meetings of the Society regularly and the membership would have saved me money on registration fees. 

I enjoy being a member of the Society because it has allowed me to participate in decisions that the Society takes, and I have also been able to get involved in the organization of the Annual Meetings, being a member of the Program Committee in 2018 and 2019.

The Society for Cryobiology is the largest group of cryobiology professionals in the world, and as plant cryobiologist, I have found here a great support and platform for my research."

"My name is Zoran Marinović and I am a PhD student at Szent István University, Hungary. I became a student member of the Society in late 2016. My main motivation for becoming a student member was the opportunity to be engulfed in a community of likeminded researchers who deal with topics similar to mine. As this was the first time I was a part of such community, I did not know what to expect, however, at the CRYO2018 meeting in Madrid I realized that the Society was more like a family with each member being eager to gather again and exchange new scientific ideas and opinions. Long-time members were also very welcoming and open towards the new members, especially the enthusiastic and interested student members. 

As a student member I was able to apply for a Travel Grant to attend the annual meeting. Additionally, I had the opportunity to compete for the Society’s prestigious Peter L. Steponkus Crystal Award for Best Student Oral Presentation, which I won in 2018. Besides having the honor of being one of the best student presenters at the conference, I was also awarded a generous honorarium that I decided to spend on my further scientific development."
