Special Dues Information

I am unemployed, but I want to retain my membership; am I eligible for a reduced dues rate?

Unemployment eligibility: Upon request of the member via e-mail or phone, and subject to management approval. Active (current and continuous) APA membership for the past 3 or more years entitles you to 1 year of membership dues at the unemployment rate for a maximum of 5 years (15 years of active service). This is not a billable rate, so you will have to request the unemployment rate every year upon renewal.

Unemployment rates: APA dues $50, Chapter dues $10, AICP (if applicable) $25. All publications and divisions are at regular price.
