The BMS is broadly based. Founded in 1896 in Selby, Yorkshire, it now has about 2000 members from all over the world with interests ranging from those who simply enjoy seeing 'nature' at large and are curious to know more about where and how fungi operate in the environment, to professional mycologists who earn a living through involvement with, or exploitation of, this fascinating group of organisms.

It endeavours to promote all aspects of fungi by publications, meetings, forays, conservation, and other means, including endorsing The wild mushroom pickers Code of Conduct .

The annual Calendar lists the Society's committee and programme meetings (symposia, sometimes in central Europe, residential and field meetings, fungus forays, and workshops). Tropical expeditions are held every three to four years.

The organization of the Society includes the Council, senior editors, committee secretaries, the librarian, and the homepage manager. The Society's committees represent Education, Publicity, and Special Interests.
