Any commercial organization or Blood Service interested in advancing the purpose of BEST may become a supporter of BEST by paying the annual dues amount; providing a Member at meetings to participate in discussions. 

BEST meetings provide a wealth of information as the studies reflect the cutting edge of research in the industry. Supporting members are highly encouraged to participate and even lead studies. This provides an excellent opportunity for strategic planning.

Supporting members of BEST include a broad range of companies and blood suppliers engaged with blood collection, distribution and transfusion worldwide. BEST also has some participation from regulatory agencies such as FDA and the Paul Ehrlich Institute. Participation gives a supporting member a seat at this international forum to meet and network.
