District Branch and State Association Dues

The APA and the District Branches/State Associations have a dual membership requirement. Members must join both organizations. Members in California, Connecticut, and New York belong to the state association and local district branch. The state-level dues help sponsor professional development opportunities, local meetings for networking and continuing educational programs, newsletters , and even state-level lobbying efforts for the advancement of psychiatry.

APA assists some District Branches in collecting dues but is not liable for any decisions or actions of the District Branches or State Associations. District Branch/State Association dues range from $60-$600.

Once you submit your membership application you will be sent an invoice with exact amount of membership dues owed.
