Ready to Upgrade Your APHA Membership?
The answer is YES! If...
- You hope to gain access to additional benefits such as access to contracts, or access to patient requests for help (Find a list of benefit comparisons here.)
- You hope to list your profile in the AdvoConnection Directory.*
- You would like access to additional marketing materials and to participate in annual initiatives like Private Professional Patient Advocates Week.
- You would like to apply for the Schueler Patient Advocacy Compass Award.
- ... or for any other reason that will move your independent, private, advocacy career choice forward.
What Does It Cost to Upgrade?
If you have been a PACE member for less than your full paid year, we will credit you with your unused PACE time and subtract that from the $289. (Example - you joined APHA as a PACE member 8 months ago. You'll receive a 4-month credit of your PACE dues, approximately $20.)
Further, if you are a member of, or participant in one of the APHA Affiliate Organizations, you'll receive an additional $30 discount. (Only one discount, even if you belong to, or participate in more than one of our affiliate organizations.)
How to Upgrade to APHA Premium Membership
It's not difficult! Here are the steps.
- Fill out and submit the APHA Premium membership application.
- Once we've received your application, we'll do the math (applying the credit and possible discount mentioned above, as appropriate.) We'll send you your Next Steps email and an invoice for the balance to pay for your new Premium membership.
- Pay for your new membership.
- You'll receive your Premium Welcome Email - and you'll have everything you need to keep your advocacy practice momentum going.
