The thought of an association called the Medical Mycological Society of the Americas (MMSA) was brought during the Second Symposium on Coccidioidomycosis held at Phoenix, Arizona, December 8-10, 1965. During the meeting the mycologists gathered to talk about bringing together medicinal mycologists all through the Americas into a Common Platform. A portion of the targets of that Society were to unite all medical mycologists under a central organization that will recognize their needs and represent their interests, to develop communication and education about medical mycology. The first party of restorative mycologists keen on sorting out a general public to perceive their expert needs and speak to their interests met in Los Angeles California on Saturday, April 30, 1966 at General Lee's Man Jen Low Restaurant, Eighty-one mycologists attended the meet. After mixed drinks and a feast, a brief conference and exchange period was held. Correlated subjects were talked about, general approach was laid out, and advisory group arrangements were made. These incorporated the Aims and Goal of the Society, Mode of Activity including gatherings and distributions. The time and place for the following meeting was booked for New York City only before the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology.
