Member Revocation Policy

Members of the association, participants in the APSA Annual Meeting and the Teaching and Learning Conference, and individuals who hold association leadership positions (Council, Committees, and Fellowship and award/review committees) are expected to meet the commonly held standards of professional ethics and scientific integrity. In the rare case that an APSA member, a meeting or conference attendee, or an individual in a leadership position no longer meets this expectation, as established through outside investigative proceedings and determinations, the set of guidelines and procedures laid out in the Member Revocation Policy are to be followed to request revocation and for the consideration of the request to revoke an individual’s APSA’s membership, meeting participation privileges, and/or their association leadership positions and privileges.
