Section Membership FAQs

Please note that if you are not a member of APSA, you will have to become a member of the association to join any Organized Sections. See the Membership section for further details.

1. How do I join an Organized Section or renew my membership in one?
To join an organized section you will be able to do so upon creating a membership. To renew your membership to an organized section, simply click on “sections” located in your profile under the membership heading.If you need assistance joining or renewing, contact [email protected].

Login to your membership account. Click on “section” located in your profile under the membership heading. If you are missing section information, please contact the APSA membership team at [email protected].

3. I want to make sure I re-join the same sections as last year. How do I do that?
Again, login to your membership account. Click on “section” located in your profile under the membership heading. If you are missing section information, please contact the APSA membership team at[email protected].

4. I haven't been receiving my section materials. Who do I contact to fix it?
First, login to your account and check to make sure our database both lists your correct mailing and/or e-mail address and includes you as a current member for the section in question. If you are not listed and would like to join, you can do so through your profile buy clicking “sections” located under the membership heading.

If you remember joining at a prior date and feel that you should be listed as a current member, contact the APSA membership team at [email protected]and they will correct the error. If you are a section member and APSA has your correct contact information, you will then need to contact the Chair of the Section in question to find out where you materials went awry. You can find his/her contact information on the organized sections link of this website. The APSA National Office neither produces nor distributes section materials.
