The Apra Pennsylvania membership year runs from January 1 to December 31. Pro-rated memberships are not available. To receive the most from your membership, dues should be paid by February 1 of each year.
Organizational memberships are paid for by the organization and remain the property of the organization. If an Apra Pennsylvania member leaves the organization, the organization may transfer the membership to the new employee via a written request to the Membership Director.
Individual memberships are paid for by the individual (with a personal check) and are portable; if that individual moves to another organization, he/she brings the membership with him/her to that organization. He/she may change employer information by updating his/her profile by logging into the Apra Pennsylvania website.
Bundled memberships for small and large bundles are paid for by the organization and remain the property of the organization. If an APRA Pennsylvania member leaves the organization's bundle, the Bundle Administrator may transfer the membership to a new employee.
There is a single dues rate per membership type per calendar year. Please see the JOIN page for rates.
Membership policies, benefits and dues are reviewed annually and may be changed annually. Members will be notified in writing of any planned changes at renewal time, usually in the Fall of each year.

Member information included in the membership directory (work phone number, work e-mail) is intended to foster communication among the membership and is restricted to active Chapter members. This information (work contact information) is shared with Apra International regularly.
Apra Pennsylvania collects from conference registrants home phone numbers and/or cell phone numbers for conference cancellation purposes only. Home contact information is not permanently stored and is not posted on the Web.
Apra Pennsylvania's current business model includes soliciting corporate sponsors to underwrite a portion of conference expenses. In exchange for underwriting and for presenting at a conference, the sponsor is provided with work contact information for all conference attendees. Following a conference, the sponsor may follow up with conference attendees by phone, letter, or e-mail to inform them of the company's services. Please forward any concerns about this business model to the President. APRA Pennsylvania's website can include photos of members if they wish. APRA Pennsylvania takes candid photographs at each conference. If you wish to opt out of either of these, contact the Membership Chair.
