Canadian Association of Palynologists (CAP). Members of CAP are palynologists from universities, industry and government agencies. The association focusses on palynology from all geologic eras, spanning the Palaeozoic to the Quaternary. Palynologists from all branches of the discipline, from stratigraphic palynology, to palaeoecology, to melissopalynology, participate in the Association.

Commission Internationale de Microflore du Paléozoique (C.I.M.P.). C.I.M.P. is an international federation of palynologists interested in Palaeozoic palynology. The commission aims to advance knowledge in palynology and related subjects by the promotion of international co-operation and meetings between scientists of all regions and countries.

International Humic Substances Society: The motto of IHSS is "To Advance the Knowledge, Research and Application of Humic Substances". For scientists with interest in humic substances in the coal, soil, and water sciences, and to provide opportunities for them to exchange ideas, skills, and viewpoints.

The International Nannoplankton Association (hosted by The Natural History Museum in London): INA is a semi-formal association of scientists worldwide who have an interest in living or fossil nannoplankton - including coccolithophores, nannoliths, and other nannofossils such as silicoflagellates and calcisphere.

The North American Micropaleontology Section (NAMS) of the Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM): The purpose of the Section is to promote all aspects of micropaleontology through application, research and education dealing with morphology, biostratigraphy, ecology/paleoecology, and geologic history of all groups of microfossils occurring in the stratigraphic record.
