Reasons to Join

The SAMPS provides a unique opportunity to connect with your peers in the Life Sciences. We aren't well known (yet) but when people discover the association and the value it provides, they are typically both surprised and thrilled.

Of course you can ask, “What do I get with my membership?” You will certainly find value in offerings like the Salary Report or self-assessments, or in our free service to help you maximize marketing outcomes offered by partner Covalent Bonds. We also offer discounted research reports from BioInformatics.

But the real value comes in three flavors when you join SAMPS:


Improving and expanding your skills are important parts of your career development. The association provides online and face to face opportunities to learn from other members and training organizations.

3 Ways to Increase Your Competence

  1. Start with a self assessment.
  2. Attend a workshop at the Annual Meeting.
  3. Develop your skills as a volunteer within SAMPS.


You won't get where you want to go alone. Your value increases with every connection you make. Local events, the annual meeting and volunteer opportunities allow you to connect with like minded colleagues in the industry. Our free marketing optimization service also helps you connect with the right marketing partner to help you achieve your business objectives.

Local groups are active in Boston, Research Triangle Park and the SF Bay Area. Connect with your local peers at a Meetup in these areas. To start a meetup in your area, contact us. We'll help you get started.

Market Understanding

The association helps its members stay current with trends and factors in thelife science  marketplace through member only content such as the annual meeting, our salary survey, and curated content on the association blog.

SAMPS, Sales And Marketing Professionals in Scientific research, is the first and only organization dedicated to sales and marketing professionals within the life sciences.

The association’s goal is to serve its members who work in commercial roles for life science products and services companies and associated businesses, globally.
SAMPS was previously named ACP-LS. We feel that SAMPS more clearly describes the membership, and will form a better foundation from which to expand this membership globally.
