Agency member benefits 

APHA has created a new agency membership designed to provide extra value for membership dues dollars. We are excited about these new, enhanced offerings and believe they will result in a much greater return on your organizational investment. For example, a new employee benefit allows individuals within your organization to join APHA at a greatly discounted rate. Those joining will be entitled to the full range of membership benefits afforded all APHA members, including the opportunity to present at the Annual Meeting and participate in two Sections of their choice.

Other new benefits include visibility for your agency on the APHA website, discounts on advertising and publications, and much more. Check out the full list of benefits and a fee chart in our Frequently Asked Questions. (PDF)
