AASP was established in 1967 by a group of 32 founding members to promote the science of palynology. Today AASP has a world-wide membership of about 500 and is run by an executive including an elected Board of Directors and subsidiary boards and committees. The executive Board of Directors meets at the Annual Meetings and at mid-yearly meetings. In 2008, AASP changed its name from the "American Association of Stratigraphic Palynologists, Inc." to "AASP - The Palynological Society" and changed its logo to reflect AASP's promotion of all aspects of palynology in academia and industry.
