                                                                                                                              Application Processing

Membership applications are processed only after the $150 payment ($25 non-refundable application fee and $125 for first year dues) is received. Applications without payment will expire six months after submission.
Once payment is received, the application will be forwarded to the Region Director for vetting.  Once the vetting process is completed, the application is submitted to the Vice President for approval. This process normally takes 5 - 10 business days depending on how quickly applicant references respond.  Membership application approvals are provisional and final approval is based upon a vote of the AAPP Membership during the Business Meeting at the Annual Seminar. Once provisional members are approved by the Membership they will receive a Certificate of Membership from the AAPP Secretary.
