The World's Poultry Science Association (WPSA)


The WPSA was formed in 1912 and is an international association of people concerned with poultry science and its application in the poultry industry.  Its major role is to encourage, and help facilitate, liaison among research scientists and educators, and between those in research and education and those working in the many diverse sectors of the industry. There are now over 6300 members in 71 countries, including USA, all the former Soviet states, most European countries, Asia, Australasia, China, Japan, Israel and many countries of Africa and South America.

The aims of the association are to:
(a) promote the advancement of knowledge of all aspects of poultry production.
(b) disseminate this knowledge and to facilitate its exchange throughout the world.
(c) promote World Poultry Congresses, Regional Conferences, Symposia and Seminars.
(d) co-operate with other international organisations in achieving these aims.
The Association is run by an elected Management Board, an Executive Committee and a Council of members drawn from branches. The activities of the Association centre around World Congresses, Regional Conferences, Symposia and the Association Journal (the World's Poultry Science Journal) with a world-wide circulation of nearly 7000 copies.
