*Before joining or renewing as an APHA member, employees should consult their management office to see if their organization is either currently an APHA Agency or Company & Consultant member or is in the process of becoming one. Refunds and member type changes will not be offered retroactively. Members who join or renew independent of an organization are eligible to renew at the agency individual rate at the end of their membership term as long as their organization is a member in good standing.
